A native Michigander, Aren Saltiel moved to Lake Tahoe in 2009 and joined the Ward-Young team shortly after. He has gained experience through his work on a variety of residential and commercial projects since entering the profession in 2007. His responsibilities include design, project management, construction administration and the production of construction documents. He’s particularly interested in contemporary and sustainable architecture that appropriately responds to its surrounding environment.
Away from the office, Aren enjoys taking advantage of the Tahoe lifestyle and is often skiing, mountain biking, climbing, or hiking before and after (or during) work. He’s an active traveler, whether that means a weekend camping with his dog, or backcountry skiing in Japan. On summer evenings, you can find him at the winery playing in Truckee’s local cutthroat bocce ball league.
