My name is Jackson Durand, I am the principal owner for Durand Architectural Engineering Inc. I am a native Californian, born and raised in Orange County. Shortly after I graduated from the Army & Navy Academy in Carlsbad, I began backpacking around the world from Europe to Asia, and South America. While traveling and living abroad I experienced the kaleidoscope of different life styles & cultural values that exist in our world, and pondered how I could bring some of that home with me. When I returned home, I moved over to the Islands of Hawai'i where I received my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2007. Since then, I have worked with some of the top professionals in California on projects ranging from small remodels & additions to 120 unit multi-family complexes. I have been fortunate enough to have an amazing structural engineer as my mentor and advisor, Paul H. Durand P.E., S.E.
