PAUL is a professional journalist, former radio news anchor, actor, runner and history buff. A native of the New York/New Jersey area, he’s been exploring Washington’s crannies, cemeteries and memorials for 20 years and is in his third year with Washington Walks. He holds a bachelor of arts in communication from the University of Delaware and is an alumnus of Washington’s Studio Theatre Conservatory and Theatre Lab School of the Dramatic Arts. He salutes the National Park Service on its quasquicentennial and has never forgotten his first visit to Rocky Mountain National Park in 1976. Paul lives near Fort Hunt Park, a less-familiar NPS treasure near Mount Vernon, and encourages visitors not to miss the quiet pleasures of Rock Creek Park, one of the nation’s first federally managed parks.
