Paul Believes in American Ideals
Our country is not perfect but we should always be striving toward a more perfect union. America’s founding principles – liberty, equality, justice, opportunity – must always be the driving force of the nation and our people’s prosperity. When our country falls short of its ideals, we must rally together to root out injustice – not tear ourselves apart.
Paul is a Professional Problem Solver
Paul solves problems for a living. For almost 30 years, his company has helped hundreds of government agencies, universities and corporate clients achieve important goals.

Paul is a Leader Who Brings People Together
Society loves heroes and superheroes but long-lasting solutions are almost always the result of good teamwork. In our fractured political culture, people rarely cross party or ethnic lines to find common ground. Throughout his career, Paul has helped people with different experiences and different priorities work together. As Ronald Reagan said, “There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit.”
Paul is a Voice of Reason
In a time where too many people are encouraged to believe their “own truth” or only support ideas from their own tribe, Paul remains committed to the actual truth – good or bad. His training in journalism and computer science helps him maintain objectivity, even when disagreements get emotional. This enables Paul to help people with competing agendas commit to win-win solutions.
