Robert’s seven years of experience in construction and property management has included both business and large scale residential projects. He has headed massive electrical upgrades, ranging from 3 phase 2500 amp service as well as installation and maintenance of fiber optic systems within a 40+ building portfolio. His work over the last six years for Big Art studios LLC, and American Steel studios LLC, has given Robert the knowledge to develop a functional infrastructure for resident artists.
A tradesman at heart Robert has honed his craft in metalwork, machining, woodworking and ceramics, while maintaining his passion for cross-disciplinary projects and learning. He understands not only the space needs of an artist in the design and maintenance of a studio space, but also how to encourage communication and cross pollination among residents. A Bay Area native, Robert is deeply connected to the community, and dedicated to turning m0xy and the broader Oakland arts scene into a hub for the next incarnation of industrial fabrication.
