A founding partner of A359 Partners in Architecture, Bob focuses on crafting a collaborative practice that produces creative results. His leadership extends to every aspect of project work from management of large-scale projects to quick conceptual design studies. Bob believes that A359’s principal-driven office allows for a clear focus on client partnering with a commitment to shared values and goals.

Bob spent most of his formative years in Texas and earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Houston. Throughout his career, he has master planned campuses for corporate and education clients across the U.S. He has provided creative design solutions for a wide range of clients including Gillette, CareSource and Macy’s, as well as regional universities such as the University of Toledo and University of Cincinnati.

He served locally on the board of the American Institute of Architects and is a past president of AIA Cincinnati. While serving in this role, he initiated the interdisciplinary-focused Cincinnati Design Awards program. As Cincinnati architectural consultants and leaders, giving back is a core part of the firms beliefs.

Bob puts the same high level of care into his culinary creations that he does in his work. Since he is particular about his barbecue, he makes his own. A custom smoker trucked from Texas graces his home in Mariemont.
