Tell us a little about yourself. Family, hobbies, etc.
I’m a professional engineer, and I have a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh. I went to Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School (Pro Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Dan Marino was a senior when I was a freshman). Terri and I celebrated 30 years of marriage this year (time flies). We have 3 sons (Paul III, Brandon, Jordan). I like to travel (especially to the ocean and Disney World), attend Pittsburgh Steelers and Pitt Football games, golf, read books, and visit with family and friends.

What is your definition of success?

What is one of your favorite memories from working here?
The White Elephant gift exchange. It always makes me laugh when our team opens these gifts. My favorite is the blow-up horse that David Price got. I really wanted that horse.

A client said I can always trust you to do what you say.

Back to the Future (all three of them) and all the Indiana Jones movies.
What is something unique about you (a fun fact) that few people are aware of?
I attended only one Kentucky Derby (1973). The winning horse was Secretariat, possibly the greatest horse of all time. Also, I sat about 10 rows from Secretariat’s owner (check out the Disney movie on this horse). I must be in the video somewhere.
