Bob joined the Destiny Arts Center board in 2011 after, with his wife Kay, being a destiny fan and supporter for many years. Bob was especially committed as a new board member to help with the then ongoing capital campaign and achieving Destiny’s goal of finding and purchasing what is now Destiny’s home.
Bob retired in 2005 after two years as a construction engineer in Alaska and nearly 40 years as an attorney in San Francisco. During and before retirement Bob has volunteered extensively with not for profit youth programs, including Vision Youthz, a program for incarcerated young men in San Francisco; serving as an elder with Stepping Stones Project, an ongoing right of passage program for Bay Area middle school age youth; and serving as a mentor for individual young men. Bob grew up in Minnesota and holds engineering and law degrees from the University of Minnesota. Bob and his wife Kay moved to San Francisco in 1966, raised their three children in the East Bay, and now are active learners from six grandchildren in the Bay Area.
