Paul started with music just playing piano and wanting to be a songwriter and wanting to be a jazz pianist at one point. He was fortunate enough for his wife to get him into a film and television music writing class at UCLA taught by Robert Eetall who is now a collaborator. This led to Paul becoming a composer for X-Ray Dog where he composed trailers for cartoons and reality TV shows; from that he saw the enjoyment he got from trailer music and eventually did that full time. Paul's influences are Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy; he's always listening to soundtracks. Paul uses Logic Pro software.
