Roberto Penullar immigrated to the United States from Manila, Philippines. The driving force behind his pursuit of the architectural profession was when Roberto started working with his father, an Interior designer for the Philippine Presidential Palace and other private residential projects.
Roberto graduated from Drexel University in Philadelphia with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. He has more than 35 years of experience in the architectural field working for a multi-disciplinary firm as an architectural associate. His full range of experience includes hotel and condominium projects, local County School District, historic renovations in downtown Pensacola, commercial banks and credit unions, veterinary clinic renovations, and the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).
Roberto is passionate about being an advocate in seeking out opportunities to assist others in need. He makes considerable and continuing commitment to community service, such as caring for children as a former Foster Parent for more than 12 years, Habitat for Humanity Liaison and “Faith-Build” volunteer, two-time Vestry officer for St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, Pensacola. He describes himself as altruistic, inquisitive (eager for knowledge and willing to learn), passionate, and always having a sense of humor.
