Upon graduation, he went on to practice architecture for over 45 years gaining diverse experience in Residential, Commercial, Medical, and Educational facilities in programming, planning, design, project management, and Architectural Services. His talents led him to work for several architectural firms and partnerships, including Project Manager of the School Board of Broward County and Principal Architect of his own practice in Boca Raton, Florida. Paul was a prominent architect in the community and embodied the “work hard” spirit being attentive to every detail. He valued and respected his clients and created a very personal, specific and intentional design for each one. He served as President for The Dary Organization and for The Centre of Boca Barwood Homeowners’ Association. He was the recipient of several Gold & Silver Key Awards for his excellence in outstanding home design.
Paul was a man who lived and loved well.
