I’d like to learn to play the violin/fiddle.
Where’s the most interesting place you’ve been?
The Isle of Skye in Scotland.
What are three things you can’t live without?
Jackie, Decklan and Shealyn Murcko. Family is everything. Anything else I do is done to support that love.
Ty Murcko is a Manager of Transportation Engineering with nearly 20 years of experience working in McCormick Taylor’s Pittsburgh, PA office. During those years, Ty has earned several other titles that are near and dear to him, including: husband, dad, coach, and musician.
As a father of two, Ty has coached a variety of youth sports including football, wrestling, baseball, and softball. He also enjoys playing a multitude of instruments, and writing and recording music.
Ty’s role at work involves managing several projects at a time, pursuing business development opportunities, and managing the roadway engineering staff in Pittsburgh. He is currently working on a landslide remediation project with PennDOT District 11 that involves 3/4 of a mile of roadway reconstruction and adjacent slope stability improvements through a suburban area. Through his work on projects, Ty enjoys connecting with other engineers and sharing experiences that can help everyone involved grow as professionals and as people.
“I find few things more rewarding than helping someone move towards and achieve a goal they’ve set forth," Ty noted.
When asked what his favorite McCormick Taylor memory was, Ty shared an experience that combined both work and family: “April 9, 2013. It was the day before my son was born and I was leaving work with a pile nerves and anxiety. As I left, the entire office was gathered at the front to shower me with love, support and encouragement. I’m typically one to separate my work life and my personal life, but it’s moments like this one that open me up to the benefit of allowing those worlds to blend.”
