Associate Principal

Drew began his career as a ZFA intern for three summers while attending UCLA. After graduating, Drew spent the next seven years working in Honolulu and San Diego, gaining unique experiences on a variety of projects ranging from beachfront high-rise hotels to remote south-pacific US military bases.

In 2012, Drew and his wife returned with their two young children to their hometown and rejoined the ZFA Santa Rosa office.

Since returning to ZFA, Drew has enjoyed serving many of the local commercial project sectors, including hotel, industrial, residential, and wineries.

    • Prioritizes diligent communication and coordination across project disciplines
    • Possesses extensive experience in multi-story, light-frame, and podium construction

Drew understands that making constructability a design priority is key to any project’s success.

“My favorite thing about engineering is when the structure is in harmony with the building’s architecture and function—that’s when I know the team has created a beautiful design together!”
