Paul grew up in the heart of the San Juan Mountains on Colorado‚Äôs western slope and got his first point and shoot camera at the age of 11, which he eagerly drug around skiing, and biking with all of his friends, always riding ahead to set up and get the shot. Since then, Paul has continued skiing and biking and picked up a few more exciting sports. He is still carrying his camera everywhere, and currently pursuing a double major in Visual Journalism and Marketing at Western Washington University.  When he is not helping Gabe sort through massive amounts of photos, build tree forts, or out on commercial shoots, Paul can be found in class, or more likely playing hooky to get some early pow laps in, or on a spontaneous trip Canada to go surfing.
