Arvelo Architecture & Design

Ruperto Arvelo
, owner of Arvelo Architecture & Design, began his journey through inspiration, education, a new place to call home and the desire to open his own business. Born in New Jersey and inspired by his boss to further his graduate studies, Arvelo received his master's degree from Syracuse University. Shortly after graduating he became an in-house architect for Thompson Financial Services and worked for global firms like Robert A.M. SternRockwell Group and Gensler. It was through this experience, and not letting the imminent recession period ruin his hunger for entrepreneurialism, that he decided to try to venture on his own.
