About the Author

DSC02533After a childhood of stealing cookie dough, building tree houses, and being bad at sports, Paul attended the University of Akron where he studied music, literature, and mathematics. Besides writing poetry and prose, his interests include organic gardening and linguistics.

This site is his shortcut to fame, notoriety, and widespread admiration, and is largely a result of his laziness in seeking conventional publication.

He previously worked in Indonesia and China as an English language teacher and teacher trainer. Currently, he’s studying machine learning and natural language processing, hoping to use technology in both creative writing applications and in developing curricula which respond automatically to language learners’ unique needs.
