Paul is one of last members of a generation that learned to build in a traditional mentorship setting. At a young age he began helping his father, a carpenter, on the job. By age twelve, Paul was making cabinets and installing doors. This early interest in creating and fixing things made a career in construction an inevitable path. Now, with over 35 years of industry experience, Paul is an integral leader at KPRS and has been with the company since its inception.
Paul’s ability to plan far in advance and anticipate obstacles has enabled him to expertly handle many of the largest and most complicated projects in Las Vegas and Southern California. A few of these include Caesar’s Palace – a 60 million dollar project that included building Frank Sinatra’s personal suite, the Sheraton in the City of Industry – a 40 million dollar project, and Bacchus Jeffrey Office Park – a 50 building office park with 340,000 SF of office space. Paul’s experience in the field has also been a critical component of his success; he understands projects from multiple angles and has a strong respect for the work done by his partnering subcontractors. Though Paul’s background is expansive, he has developed a special following for his Retail and Restaurant projects at KPRS.
Paul has a degree in Engineering and Construction Management and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Cal Poly Pomona. You will still see him on campus, though this time he is on the other side of the classroom. Paul’s love of mentoring led him to teach Estimating and Scheduling courses at his alma mater, where he continues to instruct. When Paul isn’t building or teaching, you can find him tending to his garden, in the kitchen cooking, or enjoying the Carlsbad waves with his family.
