After initial studies in the fine arts concentrated in sculpture, Robert completed the Bachelor of Science in Architecture program at the University of Texas at Arlington, which included a semester exchange at the Escola Technica Superior des Valles in Barcelona.  Upon completing this sequence he went on to earn a Master of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

Robert began his post graduate career in London where he spent over a decade working on residential, commercial, and speculative projects as a collaborator or in sole practice as well as participating in various academic activities such teaching at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Architecture and adjudicating in many design juries and reviews. Robert recently returned to the U.S. to synthesize his understanding and experience of European architecture with a renewed interest in North American urban contexts.

In addition to greatly enjoying contributing to Murray Legge Architecture he remains engaged in the academic sphere of architecture through regular participation at university reviews and symposia. Robert is currently an Associate member of the American Institute of Architects.
