Principal, Meyer Architecture Plus LLC
Armbruster also donates much of his time to help others who otherwise could not afford the services of an architect. He's donated his architectural services to Lyric Theatre and the Plaza District Association.
"I've donated my architectural services to assist them in revitalizing an area of Oklahoma City that was once flourishing," he says. "This was the beginning of an effort to not only improve the area, but to create a performing arts district."
He's also led a team to design a $3 million streetscape for the area on NW 16 Street between Classen Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue. And he continues to work with the Plaza District in choosing site furnishings and various other activities.
However, he's most proud of his work at Cornerstone Kids Ranch, a new youth camp in Ada, Okla.
Since becoming a principal at Meyer Architecture Plus, the firm has more than doubled in size and has become recognized as an American Institute of Architects "Intern Friendly Firm." It's also won the AIACOC "Firm of the Year Award."
He networks frequently at local sporting events and says his greatest lesson learned, to date, has been to never take anything for granted.
By age 50, Armbruster says he hopes to see his three sons in college at the same time.
"Now that is scary!" he says.
Armbruster received his bachelor's degree in 1992 and his master's degree in architecture in 1996, both from the University of Oklahoma.
