Meet Adolfo Flores, our next aspiring Architect! Adolfo is also married to Karen Flores and when he is not being a father and a husband, Adolfo likes to barbeque on his 250 gallon off set smoker! Sounds amazing and delicious too! When he can, Adolfo likes to watch the Texas Rangers play with something cold in his hand.

One day Adolfo would like to retire to Verona Italy. Adolfo doesn't have a particular or favorite movie but if Top Gun, The Godfather, or Pure Country is on, he will be watching!!!
