Paul published his first work in the back of Mrs. Parker’s 4th grade class. LAWS was a violent and bloody, yet at the same time, laugh out funny parody of JAWS. Hollywood was the obvious destination for this raconteur, and after college, Paul set out for Tinseltown armed with two spec scripts written on spiral notebooks (Paul recommends the Mead College-Ruled edition!), and a dream in his heart. Eighteen months later, while still working the graveyard shift at Denny’s, Paul wondered if dreams were actually for people who are asleep.
Eventually, he was able to secure employment as a writer, penning episodes for such iconic television series as LEVEL 9, SNOOPS, and that mother of all crime shows, FELICITY.
The CBS drama JUDGING AMY followed, and soon after, Paul began writing pilots for several networks, including TNT. Despite the lean prose and Kevlar plotting, the pilots died young. Sometimes, late at night, Paul sits reflectively in his office and gets a twinge deep in his stomach from imagining what might have been. Or perhaps it’s gas. Paul uses his Shakespeare action figure (with removable quill!) for inspiration, and in addition to screenwriting, has had short stories published in several anthologies, and even won an award or two.
In 2011 Paul joined the writing staff of LEVERAGE. Paul bats right and throws left. He enjoys golf, fishing, bull riding, and auto racing, but not at the
same time. He is a devoted fan of FC Bacelona and AC Milan. Paul is not on Facebook and Paul does not Twitter… because Paul is an adult with a life.
