Growing up with a father who served as a Sergeant Major in the Army, Paul broke family tradition and enlisted in the Navy at 17. He travelled the world crossing the International Date Line and equator multiple times. He has continuously served in the Navy, Navy Reserve, Coast Guard Auxiliary (Vice-Flotilla Commander), and Texas State Guard (Judge Advocate General Corps) for nearly four decades.
Paul lived in California before returning to Texas to get his BBA in accounting and earning his CPA license. After working in a variety of industries in increasing roles of responsibility, including as the Chief Financial Officer for three companies, he returned to school and graduated from Texas A&M University School of Law.
Paul continues his love of learning and adventure. He is licensed as both a private pilot and a USCG Master Mariner. He has nine children and expects his growing list of grandchildren to be epic.
