Born in the UK and raised in Canada, Paul served as Editorial Director of Canadian Consumer magazine before moving to New York in 1993. Career diversions include being a music officer at the Canada Council for The Arts and editing for the Rome Daily American during a year of work and travel in Asia and Europe.
