Paul is a writer hailing from Cork, Ireland. Initially educated in information technology, Paul earned a BSc in Business Information Systems, as well as an MSc in Multimedia Technology. The latter allowed him to peek through the window of the entertainment industry from a safe distance, which sparked something into life. Pragmatism won out however, leading him to stay in IT for several years. But over time, a nagging in his heart got the better of him and he finally resolved to follow his twin passions of writing and film. So, across the pond he went, shillelagh in hand and a shamrock in his lapel, ready to search for his pot of gold. The first step toward this goal was to earn his MFA in Screenwriting with the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, where he has now lived for the past six years, writing as much as he can between bouts of procrastination and self loathing. Paul currently writes for the world-renowned commercial production company, LA’s Smuggler, where he works with their impressive roster of directors to help develop their creative pitches.
