Andrew "Ross" Ikemire


​Jamie Hulse


As an Architect, I’ve worked 30 years in the design industry focusing on a variety of hotels, multi-family communities, prototype public schools for both elementary and middle schools, entertainment facilities, and light commercial projects. Ikemire Architects is a dynamic firm with opportunity to excel and learn from each team members various talents. I teach others as much as I learn from others. Flexible hours allow team members to schedule their workdays around personal needs, especially children. The ability for each team member to work remotely when required greatly helps each team member meet their family and work obligations.

Handling multiple complex projects at once while organizing teams of staff, consultants, and contractors.
Dedication and working long hours to meet deadlines.
Willingness to go the extra mile to satisfy client needs.

Ben Levene

I have worked on many projects for single family homes in Dallas and the Park Cities. I have met and spoken to interesting people during my time at Ikemire Architects. My favorite thing about the job is getting to work with my clients face to face. I find in person communication much more effective and personal than emails and phone calls. It always makes me happy showing plans to clients and seeing them see what their new home is going to look like.

Whitney Romeo

LEED Green Associate

Whitney is a Project Manager at Ikemire Architects. She has accumulated over a decade of experience in architecture, having worked for other firms in the Dallas area before joining the Ikemire team several years ago. She has primarily been involved in the design and production of single-family and multi-family projects at various scales. Whitney says, “I very much enjoy and appreciate being a part of the talented team at Ikemire. I love collaborating with everyone and engaging in the daily problem-solving that goes into a project’s design; I’ve learned a lot from each of my colleagues. I also value working one-on-one with our clients and understanding them all as the individuals that they are, with the unique sets of wants and needs that they each bring to their projects. From a pure design standpoint, I especially enjoy spatial composition and planning. Above all else, I try to never lose sight of the fact that I’m playing an important role in helping to shape what will ultimately become someone’s home.” Whitney holds a Master of Architecture degree from The University of Oregon, along with a Master of Science degree in Sustainability Studies and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. She is actively pursuing licensure and is a member of NCARB.
