Wheeler‘s career started in architecture. After working for the Los Angeles modernist hero office of Dworsky Associates, he spent seven years in the northern Italian studios of architects Lorenzo Ferretti Garsi, Desolina Mori, Silvio Bernardi and Francesco Coppola. Thanks to his experience, Wheeler is fluent in Italian. Upon his return to the U.S., he joined the New York City firm of Wilvan Van Campen and later served as Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Robert Gray Architects.
Wheeler holds a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University (Firenze) and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Arizona.
