He is a licensed builder with the State of Florida and Certified in CPTED design.
Alain has worked for various South Florida architectural firms since 1985 and has a vast array of experience in residential, governmental, education and commercial projects. Alain started working with Gallo Architects and Development Consultants in 2001. He is both creative and pragmatic in his design approach. His construction background combined with architecture is crucial in translating technical design systems to construction documentation.

The project was selected as one of sixteen global sustainable cities to serve as models for the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI). Alain occasionally contributes to NPR’s Radio Green Earth to discuss viable options in sustainable design. He was a team member of C.U.R.E for the historical preservation program of the City of Hollywood, Florida.
Alain is fluent in English, French and Spanish, when he is not writing or painting you can catch him cheering at his daughter’s fastpitch softball games.
