Mr. DiMaria has wanted to be an architect since he was a five year old. An aptitude for math brought him to the Architectural Engineering program at Pennsylvania State University, where he completed the Architectural Engineering program with a specialization in lighting/electrical and a minor in Architectural Studies. He was fortunate to spend a summer semester in Italy. His time in Rome was filled with studying the “amazing architecture” and realizing his dream of seeing the Villa Rotunda, his “favorite building of all time.”
It was Architectural Engineering that brought Ari to the study of Lighting. He found it to be the “best way to help people be comfortable and efficient in living and working spaces.” In addition, Lighting allows Ari to express his creativity, which is more of a challenge in traditional engineering.
Most of his free time is spent playing video games. Ever since he was little, Ari has been enthralled and infatuated with building video games and toys. This life-long passion has only strengthened his love of Architecture.
