Paul’s first love is as a storyteller, and as such has been writing professionally since 2004, stunting since 2011 (a SAG-AFTRA member since 2018), producing since 2013, and directing since 2015.  Although he has worked hard at honing his craft, he is still a team player and has been a member of the Carnegie Screenwriters, the West Virginia Filmmakers Guild, and – through his production company, Dreaming Droids Productions, a corporate sponsor of the West Virginia Filmmakers Guild and the Pittsburgh Film Office.

His training includes the United Stuntmen’s Association International Stunt School and the Virginia Beach Bash Combat Workshop For Stage and Film, a BA in English from SUNY Fredonia, publishing credits as a journalist and an author, was an English/writing tutor at two college campuses, formerly taught filmmaking to Pittsburgh highschoolers through Steeltown Entertainment Project, and boasts more than 80 credits on independent film projects – several of which earned awards and recognition for his contributions.
