Donald Taylor, CPD, GPD, earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Engineering Technology from the University of Southern Mississippi and began his career as a Plumbing Designer in Houston straight out of college. Initially designing different types of local commercial projects, two years later he advanced to the level of Senior Plumbing Designer at one of the largest architectural/engineering firms in the world, where he gained experience working on international projects as well as learning to meet unusual criteria by a variety of clientele.
After nine years in Houston, Don decided to move to Norman, Oklahoma for a slower pace of life and to start a family. While there, he was a member of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Chapter, which helped start the ASPE Oklahoma City Satellite Chapter, where Donald served as Interim President for two years. Five years later, Don moved back to and currently resides in Houston with his wife Jean and daughter Savannah.
Donald became a full member of ASPE in 2004 and served as a business meeting delegate at the 2004, 2010, 2012, and 2014 national Conventions. He is currently serving on the Houston Chapter Board of Directors as President and has served as both Chair and Co-Chair of the ASPE Houston Product Show. After earning his Certified in Plumbing Design designation, in a joint effort with a co-worker he began helping others prepare for the CPD exam. Since 2006, Donald has regularly proctored CPD review classes at the local chapter and national Society levels.
