Background and Professional Interests

Paul joined the Work Group team in March of 2014. Born in New York City and raised in Lawrence, Kansas, he attended KU in the early 1980s on a double music scholarship for Voice and Viola. Since then, Paul has worn many “career hats,” having been an actor, writer, composer, singer, arranger, and motion graphics producer. Initially, he spent seven-plus years with the California Community Foundation as their communications assistant. In 2010, he relocated to the Midwest from Los Angeles, where he spent another decade producing and designing DVD/Blu-ray Disc menus and interactive content for many Hollywood films and television shows. His first novel, “Silver Shoes,” was selected as a 2010 Kansas Notable Book by the Kansas Center for the Book and the State Library of Kansas. A sequel, "The Powder of Life," was released in 2012. His latest effort, a biography entitled "More Than Tongue Can Tell," was co-authored with Warner Bros. film star Andrea King and was published in 2014.
