My name is Frank Paolino and I moved to Santa Barbara with my family in early 2015. I’m a native of Boston, Massachusetts, and after high school I desired to branch out and see everything this country has to offer. City life gave way to rural country life studying at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where I received a BFA in Architecture. Growing up in Boston, I was able to experience a wealth of culture and history in the built environment. Everything fascinated me, from the Old North Church to the Institute of Contemporary Arts. I was enamored by architecture. After graduation I moved to Colorado to pursue my dream of skiing the rockies, and I spent my days as a construction manager for Habitat for Humanity. But soon I would find myself back in Boston pursuing my architectural passion by working in residential design, and then commercial design. Ever curious for new horizons, I soon found myself relocating to the West Coast, where Santa Barbara stood out as an oasis of beautiful architectural design. Real estate became a natural transition for mem, as it combined my adventurous spirit with my love for architecture.
