Paul is a fixer of many things at home and at PBA. He is the go-to guy when a toilet or a roof leak, or anything needs fixing. Paul is a sewer. He made a reflective vest for his dog, Baloo, he hems pants, and lets out many hems, as he has two quickly growing boys.

His work has included being a licensed carpenter, construction manager for Habitat for Humanity, and working for the East Bay Regional Parks. He is a gifted power napper – taking short 10 minute naps during the day. Paul is an amazing and wonderful Dad. He encourages his boys to pursue music, art, and whatever else they are interested in. He holds down the fort at home every day!

He loves cutting hair and gets many compliments on his haircuts – Brenn is a frequent customer!
