As founding principal of Eustilus Eric has been practicing commercial and residential architecture on three continents since 2001. Raised in Southern California and educated at the University of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona Eric began his career designing and managing multi-million dollar homes for McClean Design.
From 2007 to 2010 Eric and his wife Daniela moved to Madrid, Spain for three years enjoying tapas, soccer and flamenco. With the wonderful world of the internet Eric continued his professional practice with McClean Design.
