Paul was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California and was surrounded by the action sports scene of surfing, snowboarding and skating his entire life. He was handed down his 1st camera from his father who was a professional photographer at a young age. From there, he was hooked on the craft the camera offered him, combined it with his love for action sports and enrolled in college to further his skill-set. He then received his Film and TV degree from San Diego State University and quickly migrated to Los Angeles soon afterward to pursue a career in the media and arts genres.
After working for Fuel TV & Globe Int Ltd for numerous years, Paul continued to shoot for brands such as Toyota, Uniqlo, Quiksilver, Roxy Athletic, Hoodie Buddy and Mad Dogg Athletics to name a few.
