Mark Rossi
Senior Project Architect

Mark joined Pinnacle in 1997 and has done everything from project management to all design phases on the firm’s most complex projects. When he started, Mark says he learned more about the practice of architecture after six months at Pinnacle than all the classes he took. With so much history at Pinnacle, Mark is a wealth of knowledge and a resource for our staff and clients.

As a young boy, he was enamored with architecture. He started with Lincoln Logs, moved into building tree forts, and learned real-life building by watching his grandpa build the family cabin. Mark was surrounded by years of knowledge from family members who worked in construction to first-hand experience working for a large home building firm in Las Vegas. He’d studied hard but also earned his chops in the “real construction world.”

Mark’s squishy side comes out when a dog visits the office. He’s a dog lover and fisherman who, he says, “attempts to golf.” Learn more about Mark’s love of fishing and background in a Q&A.
