Ignacio Rodriguez is a self-made and visually-driven architect with an impressive slate of luxury real estate successes throughout Southern California. His elite slate spans high-end luxury homes that range from 5,000 square-foot contemporary new-builds to 70,000 square-foot estates that are among the largest houses on the market in America. Since launching his own architecture firm, IRA (Ignacio Rodriguez Architects), at the age of 28, Rodriguez has quickly built an impressive repertoire and became a vigorous force in the highly-competitive world of LA luxury residential architecture. Rodriguez places a strong emphasis on collaborating with clients to bring their vision and his designs to fruition by fusing his client-focused approach with a passion for providing functional, yet visually-appealing designs.

Leading IRA to constant advancement and innovation, Rodriguez recently launched AVR, a virtual reality studio offering virtual property inspections for clients, developers and financial institutions to facilitate the development process.

Being a Southern California-native, his work is informed by his deep appreciation and natural understanding of the demographic, climate and distinct design potential in Los Angeles. Rodriguez attended Woodbury University in Burbank, CA and upon completing several years of professional practice, he launched his own company with the intent to create a firm that leads with a client’s vision. Rodriguez’s architecture aspirations began at a young age, leading him to join an architectural program in high school and intern at an architecture firm at 15 years old.

Whether you’re an online entrepreneur or brick and mortar business owner, and whether you’re hustling, growing or slaying it in your business right now, you know you want a more profitable business.

(Slight) Correction – you know that you want to super-charge your profit. With ease and with simplicity. That’s more like it. And I know that every business could make more profit – including yours.

More profit = more fun, right? And everyone should want more fun in their life.

More profit = more impact. And you want your business to make a bigger impact, yes?

So what gives? You’re not shying away from doing the work, but it may have felt like there’s an imbalance between the level of profit made and the effort that you put in – it just feels too hard to make that profit. Moreover, you know that if you want to grow your business you can’t just keep on working harder and harder {Only 24 hours in a day, remember}. Fortunately, there is another way. There is a solution for you.

I’m an infrastructure geek who likes working on the hardware, software and people sides to make endeavors successful. My experience lies within untangling underlying communication issues, both from the people and software side that would otherwise inhibit growth, and in applying learnings from large-scale enterprise to startup.

Throughout my 20 year career, I have spanned gaming, travel, healthcare, nonprofits, hospitality, productivity, government, retail, entertainment and security verticals.

In my current life, I’m a CTO and coach for technology leaders at early-stage startups as well as an angel investor and tech advisor. I've also served on various boards with the aim of fostering entrepreneurship, and I write, speak and produce workshops around the world to that end.
