Paul has been a television editor in the Baltimore-Washington area for over twenty years serving clients small and large, local and national. Among those clients are Discovery Communications' national and international networks, Titan Sports (World Wrestling Federation, WWF now WWE), Paramount Pictures and the Smithsonian's United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington - to name but a few. He is an EMMY voting member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS), and a voting member of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE). Paul has also won several Tellys, an ITS Monitor nomination, and a CINE Special Jury Award for his efforts on many projects over the years.

Paul first got into film, television and radio while living in Berlin in the mid-70's first as the video operator for the BAHS wrestling team, and later as an intern at AFN Radio and then at AFTV/AFN-TV. After returning to the states and finishing high school in Georgia he went to Georgia State University majoring in Commercial Music Recording with a minor in acoustical physics. From there Paul went on the road with several touring rock bands as a front-of-house (FOH) sound engineer. Finally, he found a gig as a video editor for the World Wrestling Federation that allowed him to spend more time at home with his wife and children.

Paul lives with his wife, Kathy, in the suburbs of Baltimore-Washington. They have two grown children, and three grandchildren.

Paul Markey '77 will be narrating a one-hour special called "Satellite Shootdown" on Sunday 20 July at 8pm on the "The Military Channel". It's a documentary about the recent joint forces effort to shoot down an errant spy satellite using a modified Aegis cruiser in the Pacific ocean. The Pentagon and the joint services along with several of the major contractors joined in to provide Discovery Communications LLC (whom Paul works for) with some pretty awesome insight and imagery.

Ahem... testing... testing... Is this on? Ah...

I made the jump to the other side of the microphone in a show that's going to air on The Science Channel (Baltimore Comcast Ch. 110, Direct TV Ch. 284). (Apparently, the producers liked my voice on the scratch narration during the U.S. version editing of the show enough to ask me to narrate the show for air... go figure...). Here are the details if you're interested in taking a peek:
