Paul grew up as a bit of a black swan in the preppy, sports driven world of Baltimore private schools, early on trading in his lacrosse stick for an 8mm camera with which to create stop-motion claymation shorts and Pulp Fiction inspired action flicks.  He studied fine arts in college, using that degree to become a cashier, essay grader, and bartender among other jobs, before moving to Chicago and finding himself enrolled in the inaugural class of an upstart graduate program for "digital cinema" at DePaul University.  After studying various sides of the discipline for several years there, he forwent his degree conferral, opting to move to Los Angeles and start working in the industry.  As a writer/director, film buff, and production hand, what excites him most about media content these days are the rapid advances in technology and the new avenues they create for storytelling.  Check out his website.
