Robert is DLR Group's High Performance Design Leader, tasked with integrating tools, best practices, and team resources to ensure every design improves energy efficiency, reduces environmental impact, and promotes positive design solutions for our clients and their communities. He is passionate about moving beyond design that is merely benign to the environment and pushing toward buildings that actively contribute to the health of the environment, meaning all living things.

"The range of sustainable, resilient, high-performance solutions are seemingly endless, but the real value comes when they all should create a holistic solution that is not only smart for the environment, operations, and economy, but actually contribute to the healing our world."

In addition to his leadership in high-performance design, Robert is actively involved in professional discussion groups such as the Sustainable Design Leaders Group and committees on the American Society of Adaptation Professional.  He also brings leadership to the industry by his participation on the AIA's national Resilience and Adaptation Advisory Group and the AIA Policy Committee. His expertise is recognized by U.S. Green Building Council with his appointment as a LEED Fellow, and as a Green Globe Professional and Fitwel Ambassador.
