Derek Buskirk

Associate, Senior Job Captain San Diego


Derek joined SGPA in 2012 as an intern, assisting in different capacities for projects of various sizes and studios. In his current role as a Senior Job Captain, he leads production efforts, as well as design and graphics support, renderings, and construction documents. His work ethic, sharp eye, and skills with Revit and Adobe Creative Suite have continuously created high demand for his time on many of SGPA’s projects. 

The idea that our profession can change lives and communities inspired Derek to study architecture and led to his current pursuit of licensure.
