Executive Director

Phone: (570) 310-1781


Paul is a long-time resident of the Back Mountain and Wyoming Valley. He grew up in Bear Creek Village, on the northwestern flank of the Pocono Plateau. Growing up in Bear Creek afforded Paul plenty of opportunities to explore nature’s bounty including the wonderful scrub oak barrens and boreal wetlands and forests unique to the region. In this environment, Paul developed a deep appreciation for the natural world, becoming an avid outdoorsman with a passion for fly fishing, hiking, bike riding, skiing, and most any other pursuit that gets him outdoors.

Paul lives in Dallas Township with his four children, Olivia, Louise, Malcolm, and Duncan and is active in community affairs. He currently serves on the Wilkes-Barre YMCA Board of Trustees and the Wyoming Seminary Parents’ Council and is a past board member of the Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce and Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School. Paul’s education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Lehigh University and a Master of Science degree in Environmental Resources Management from the University of Pennsylvania.

Paul has worked both in the financial sector and manufacturing, as well as serving eight years as a Field Artillery Officer in the United States Army and Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

Paul’s immediate goals for the Land Trust include building community awareness for the organization through education and outreach programming, as well as responding to the ongoing conservation needs of municipal and private landowners. One of his long-term goals includes building a more robust organization through the creation of a Land Conservation Endowment Fund that will enable the Land Trust to take a proactive role in land conservation efforts in the region.
