Paul was born in Trieste, Italy and came to the United States with his parents at the age of three. He’s lived most of my life in Chicago suburbs. He graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in architecture design.

Paul lives with his wife, Janice, and their two rescue dogs, Mowgli and Leila in rural West Virginia, where they could see a canopy of stars at night. The website is
