Bruce Camino is a licensed architect with over 40 years of experience. Well known as “The Flying Architect”, he has a unique professional practice where he’s been able to combine his profession as an architect and his passion as an aviator. His firm, Development One Inc, specializes in the design of “critical facilities” for notable clients such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, The US Air Force, JPL, and multiple clients in the aviation and aerospace sectors.
Mr. Camino attended the University of Washington in Seattle, where he received both Bachelor of Arts and Masters Degrees in Architecture. His post graduate studies have included course work at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. His multi-cultural background and keen interest in the international design field have taken him to several assignments in Asia and Latin America, and earned him an invitation to the White House in 1996. Mr. Camino has been featured in articles on multiple publications regarding his design work in Asia, his methods of architectural business diversification, and cutting edge quality control systems.
Today, he holds both visual and instrument aviation ratings and flies a Cirrus SR22T. His innovative methods of architectural practice have often been enhanced by his private pilot skill, which allows him and his design team to travel to and from project sites easily and cost effectively. He also uses the aircraft for charitable missions, transporting doctors and medical supplies to remote areas in Mexico. In addition to serving as a pilot, he assists with translation during the missions, and has held the position of Pilot Coordinator and President. He is a member of several humanitarian organizations, including the Flying Samaritans, Flying Doctors of Mercy, Angel Flight, Pilots N Paws, and has been a board member of the Aeroclub of Southern California since 2010.
Bruce Camino was born in California and is married to Lisa Camino, also a California native. They have two sons, Kevin and Brandon and reside in Anaheim Hills, California.
