Born and raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Paul grew up playing soccer and tennis through high school. In college, he started to party a lot, and began to get really out of shape. In 2005, Paul decided to make a life change where he moved to Las Vegas to join the Nevada Army National Guard, as a reservist. After Basic Combat Training and AIT, spent some time at the National Training Center near Death Valley with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment.
Shortly after the National Training Center, Paul was hired on as a member of the with MGM Resorts International with the Diversity and Leadership Education Department where he spent a few years. He left MGM to become a full time recruiter with the Nevada Army National Guard where he was named "Chiefs 54" (top producing recruiter in the state of Nevada) in 2009 and 2010. During his time as a recruiter, he discovered triathlon and the Las Vegas Triathlon Club. Paul began to meet many people in the Las Vegas area that helped him learn the sport. Paul now coaches with QT2 Systems and Outrival racing.
Paul spent the remainder of his "active" time with the National Guard recruiting, while at the same time racing at events for the National Guard Marathon & Biathlon team, also racing triathlon for Nevada's recruiting battalion.
After 8 years of service, Paul resigned from the full time duty with the National Guard and made the full time commitment to coaching athletes full time. His dedication and passion to coaching has lead to his athletes at all levels achieving new personal records on a consistent basis.
Paul is passionate about everything he does. He loves to help people achieve their athletic goals.
If Paul could live by one quote, it would be this: “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
