In a city full of transplants, Mike Asaro is a rare find. A native San Diegan working for a locally based firm, he is responsible for designing many of the county's larger office and commercial buildings. For more than 20 years, Asaro has been immersed in the local architect industry. He continues to feel a responsibility, through design, to maintain the high quality of life that so many San Diegans enjoy. Today Asaro utilizes his local perspective as one of three principals of Delawie Wilkes Rodrigues Barker.
