About Robert

Robert’s professional career began in 1974 when his first client
 approached him to design a home, prompting Robert to establish 
RGM Design. Although still in high school at the time, Robert’s 
inherent talent and love for design helped him successfully carry-out 
his first architectural project. Shortly thereafter he worked as the 
home plan designer for the Maple Hills development and the Condos 
at Maple Hills in Bountiful, Utah.

Robert graduated from the University of Utah with a BFA in Interior 
Design and Housing in 1982 and a Master of Architecture in 1984. He began his career working for Hallet Hermansen Architects and John 
S. Brunt Architects in Salt Lake City. Since then Robert has helped 
clients with residential architecture, interior design and landscape 
design in Laguna Niguel and Rancho Santa Fe, California and in various cities throughout Utah.

Commercially, Robert has worked as a Project Designer and 
Consultant with Gensler & Associates to restore the historic gate 
façade of the original MGM Studios in Century City, California. He also spent three years teaching interior design courses at the LDS 
Business College in Salt Lake City. Robert designed the Bed & 
Breakfast Inn in Murray, Utah, and re-designed the interior of the 
common space at the American Towers in Salt Lake City. His 
accomplishments include designing the interiors of the TMS Olympic 
Transportation House in Park City, Utah, and working as one of five 
Senior Interior Designers for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
Day Saints designing the San Paulo Temple in Brazil, the Manhattan 
Temple in New York, and the Newport Beach Temple in California.

Robert’s design projects have been featured in publications including 
Better Homes and Gardens, Remodeling Magazine and Salt Lake City 
Magazine. Since 1975, Robert’s work has been the highlight of the HomeBuilder’s Association Parade of Homes; his designs have won countless awards including Best Interior Design, Best Architecture, Curb Appeal, Lighting, Innovative Materials, and numerous Public Choice and Best of Show Awards. He also took first place in the ASID Teresa Bradley Spirit Award. Robert was chosen to design a home near Park City, Utah for Designer’s Challenge on HGTV. Most recently Robert was awarded Building Project of the Year for his masterful architecture on Cache Valley Electric Corporate Headquarters in Logan, Utah.
