Veronica Fisher

PRESIDENT + DESIGNER

Veronica crafts her interior environments with a deep understanding of how people interact with space.  Inspired by the eras of Modernism and Art Deco, she strives to create designs that are aesthetically pleasing and reflective of the end user’s purpose.  Born in El Salvador and raised in Hollywood, Veronica was constantly surrounded by creativity and found herself interested in architecture as early as the fourth grade.  Her high school drafting teacher inspired her to apply to Cal Poly Pomona, where she also had the opportunity to study abroad in Paris, Milan, Florence, and Athens.  She began her professional career in the themed architecture industry, designing for hospitality and entertainment clients.  She later took a coveted position on the creative team at Universal Studios Japan, where she further developed her understanding of designing imaginative surroundings.  Over the years, Veronica has developed an extensive knowledge of colors, textiles, and materials and she applies these to every space using her “less is more” approach.  She co-founded Fisher Architects in 2012, where she oversees the interior design department.  Her client’s satisfaction is her driving force - she listens and conceptualizes to ensure a successful interaction in which their vision is realized from start to finish.

MICHAEL FISHER, AIA, NCARB

PRINCIPAL

Michael is recognized by his clients and colleagues for always going above and beyond – he takes tremendous pride in his ability to guide the collaborative process with the client, consultants, contractors and all other parties involved.  His passion for architecture goes back as far as he can remember, beginning with his first job in construction.  He earned his architecture degree from Cal Poly Pomona and immediately accepted a position at a small firm in Saint Cloud, Minnesota after graduation.  This position was especially valuable because it granted him insight into running an architectural firm.  Upon returning to California in the late 90s, Michael was offered a position at LHA Architects in their commercial and retail department, where his exceptional work ethic was recognized with a promotion to Associate Principal shortly after.  He co-founded Fisher Architects in 2012 and manages the architectural department.  With over twenty years of experience in being directly involved in all aspects of a project, Michael continues to practice his hands-on approach to ensure a consistent level of quality, no matter the project size.  His experience is comprehensive – he has designed projects ranging in size from less than an acre to over sixty acres and managed construction budgets from one hundred thousand to over twenty five million dollars.  Michael is currently licensed in the states of California, Arizona, Texas and Nevada.  He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and holds a certification from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
