Paul thought going into his journalism career that he would move on to something else in five years. Little did he know his time in the newspaper business would turn into a 20-year journey that would earn praise among his peers. The life of a reporter required hard work and commitment. Paul learned to approach and speak with strangers as if they were friends. On numerous occasions he was placed in the unenviable position of calling on people who underwent personal tragedies -- and finding ways to communicate with them. Without good ingredients, not even the best chef could come up with a quality dish. So it is with journalism. Paul elicits strong material from sources and knows how to find supporting facts in research. Those skills give him a solid foundation to weave gripping news stories.
Paul specializes in news stories that quickly get to the point. Readers who want to learn why their taxes are going up don't want to wade through fancy prose. But Paul also can write feature stories that give readers a glimpse into the human condition when that kind of story is appropriate. Paul's journalistic journey has included the government, school, emergency services and courts beats. He has a broad range of experiences that allows him to effectively navigate the waters of multiple topics.
Boxing has always had a special place in Paul's heart. He's never donned a pair of gloves -- beyond backyard scraps -- but has followed the sport closely since the late 1980s and considers himself a historian. Paul also loves travel and history. He researchs the places he visits so he has an understanding of the cultures, sites and people before he gets there.
