During the day, Paul serves as the Head of Content at CreativeMornings—a free breakfast lecture series that runs monthly in 180+ cities and welcomes over 20,000 monthly attendees. He has worked with companies like the altMBA and +Acumen on strategy, marketing, content, and community building.

Born and raised in New Jersey, he moved to Brooklyn in 2016 and fell in love with street photography and portraiture. What began as play to balance a full-time job and freelance gigs became an unruly obsession, a new way of seeing. 

Inspired by trusting the creative process and building a connection with the subject, Paul's work balances elegance and empowerment.
