Paul has resided in Pennsylvania, California, Maryland, and Delaware prior to settling in Ithaca, New York. His wide-ranging collegiate explorations led to a Bachelor of Music Performance, a Master of Arts in Counseling in Higher Education, and continuing education credits in Chinese language, Japanese language, and Teaching English as a Second Language. Two favorite courses during this journey: Tokyo, the City Imagined and Earth Ethics. In keeping with the pattern of exploration, Paul is currently focused on gardening, a recent pursuit that did not garner serious attention until arriving in the Finger Lakes region. He loves chatting with students about their explorations and wonders what both planning and serendipity may bring them in good time.
