    • Recommendation
      • Rob has been a project manager, senior electrical engineer, mentor, co-worker, client, and friend during the 14 years that I've know him. He is by far one of the most talented electrical engineer and project manager I've known in my career. He specializes in complex architectural projects with fast track schedules and highly technical systems. I've said many times that if I wanted to construct a building I would want Rob to design it. You can't hire a better person and engineer. His design and mentoring skills are an asset to any firm, more especially one with young engineers and designers that need development. His code knowledge is without a doubt exceptional and he remains a resource to me even today. Rob's unique skills really show up during client design meetings. I've watched him sketch many a details and drawings explaining a concept or constructablitly method and observed the expressions of understanding show up on the faces around the table. One architect even stated "why can't all engineers do this - this was the best design charette and coordination session I've done in years." Those that have worked with Rob can attest he is an A-team player and they would love to work with him again."
