Danny Ortega

Architectural Intern

Danny was born and raised in Crete, NE. Growing up, he spent a lot of time drawing, playing sports and being involved in the small tight-knit community.

Since going to school, Danny’s interest in architectural representation–a continually growing and changing way on to how we see objects, ideas, and thoughts through an architectural standpoint–has grown. He views architectural representation as a way to begin creating new and different ways one can understand architecture.

Outside of working in the architecture world, Danny enjoys committing to a healthy lifestyle and traveling. He enjoys powerlifting at the gym and running long distance, along with spontaneous road trips.
