Bob’s first impression of landscape architecture came at age 13, when he was given his first set of golf clubs by a family friend. From that point, he became keenly aware of the built environment through the subtle nuances of green contouring and the penalizing effect that precise tree placement can have on his game.
Bob never made it to the PGA Tour. Instead, he became a licensed landscape architect and certified arborist and parlayed his study of golf courses and trees into work with several golf, planning, landscape and civil engineering firms. Over the years, he has compiled a portfolio of local, national and international projects ranging in size, scope and complexity.
At KKDG, Bob is entrusted with all aspects of the firm’s projects – from initial project planning through construction administration – and is responsible for their successful implementation. He enjoys the flow of ideas within the office, seeks client input and takes exceptional pride in his work to find creative, inspiring and sustainable design solutions for the firm’s projects.
When he’s not busy picking walnuts from four large trees in his yard, or spending time with his family of one wife, two kids and a couple dogs, he continues to seek time on the golf course, always in a futile effort to avoid those darn trees…
