Paul grew up in Ida, Michigan often exploring the 10-acre wooded lot behind his childhood home. After extensive traveling of the United States and experiencing some of the most astounding landscapes in the country, Paul stumbled into the field of Anthropology which in turn piqued his interest in human environmental impact.
After receiving his Bachelors in Anthropology from the University of Toledo in 2015, Paul left home and hiked the Appalachian Trail in its entirety for nearly six months. Upon seeing first hand the human impact on the landscape and the growing amount of pollution in some of the most remote areas of the country, he decided to devote his time to protecting the environment and informing the public on both local and large-scale environmental issues.
In his free time, Paul enjoys writing, reading, playing music, backpacking, biking, making short documentaries and long distance endurance sports.
