He has been a professional member of the American Institute of Building Design for over 25 years and is a member of the National Association of Home Builders.

As an Alabama Gulf Coast native, Bob has spent years designing charming cottages all along the gulf coast’s beautiful landscape. His designs can be found in areas from Mississippi, Mobile, and throughout the lovely small towns of Baldwin County like Fairhope and Point Clear, and extending into Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A as well as around the country. He gained notoriety in the 90s for his wildly popular Charleston Collection that was featured in many national architectural publications. His classic low country designs, popular for their charming country appearance and large porches and balconies, have a strong presence in Charleston, South Carolina, and surrounding areas. 

Bob’s creative vision for cottages and waterfront designs has led to a large collection of beachfront vacation homes and coastal cottage styles he has designed for places like Orange Beach, Alabama, Destin, Florida, and the charming seaside communities all along Scenic Highway 30A. 

Working with developers in the area Bob has been awarded the creative freedom to design entire residential communities along the Gulf Coast of Alabama. He has also designed many Showcase homes in Mobile and Baldwin Counties.
