Aaron Salazar is the founding member of AMS Drafting & Design and brings over 15 years of experience to the table.  A husband and father, Aaron likes to spend time with his family outdoors enjoying the natural beauty that his community has to offer.

 

Born and raised in Colorado, Aaron began his drafting career straight out of high school when he moved to California to become employed by his Uncle, owner of Cadre Design Group, Inc. an established, award-winning, local drafting and design firm, specializing in civil, structural and water/wastewater.  After five years of work experience within the firm, Aaron decided to pursue his love of residential design, in which he gained some exposure and knowledge of while working for Cadre Design Group.  

 

Aaron moved to San Diego, CA and was lucky enough to join, yet another, award-winning architectural firm in La Jolla, CA, IS Architecture.  IS Architecture specializes in historic preservation and high-end custom home design, which would lead Aaron down the residential design path in which he was seeking to gain more experience.  After six successful years as a job captain and draftsman for IS Architecture, Aaron gained invaluable experience with all aspects of project design phases from initial conception to City submittals and permit processing.

 

Aaron moved back to Folsom to start a business of his own, in the city in which he began his career as a draftsman and designer so many years ago.  AMS Drafting & Design was established so that Aaron could use his high-end residential background to pursue his dreams of business ownership and designing beautiful and functional spaces.  AMS Drafting & Design is now 3 years old and growing by leaps and bounds.  Aaron is hopeful for future expansion and success that he attributes to hard work and to his amazing Clients!
