Born in Miami, FL in 1973 Paul became infatuated with music at a very early age. His eclectic musical education really began with his exposer to John Coltrane during his first years of college at Appalachain State University. Soon after he began to realize the potential for expression within this art form and fully committed himself to the study of good music, with an emphasis on jazz.
After completing his degree at Appalachian State University he went on to graduate school at The University of Texas at Austin where he began to study more specifically jazz saxophone and composition. In 1999 he finished his Masters of Music in composition and moved into the doctoral program at UT Austin.
