"My best ideas start as doodles. For me, drawing is thinking and pencils are the world's best portable problem solver."

Bob is an award-winning designer who has the unique ability to visualize a client's goal, sketch a concept and design a solution that exceeds all expectations. He is very hands-on and encourages strong involvement from the client and all disciplines throughout the integrated design process.

"I believe in team work. When the team rallies around the idea, the design and the project, my job is incredibly fun."

Bob practices in all DLR Group markets, and has a focused expertise in the design of professional and collegiate venues. In addition to more than 20 baseball park projects, Bob has designed facilities for Oklahoma State University, University of Florida, and the Kansas Speedway.

In 2011, Bob established a relationship with a K-9 school in Torbeck, Haiti. Since then, he has designed a classroom, kitchen, and dining hall enlisting the help of a local Haitian carpenter.
