おはよう (hellllloooo!) You've stumbled (intentionally?) onto my site. I'm Paul. I love play, and making smiles happen.
Day-to-day, I help fuel people who eat with purpose over at Power Supply, where I design + make things.
I live in California 🌅💖. I help organize a design meetup called Designer's Hearth in the heart of Silicon Valley. My favorite part is sharing experiences betwixt other designers. We help each other grow.
Sometimes, I write about the things we explore as a design community. Just recently, Brittany (my better half) and I wrote a guide together called Crafting Your UX Portfolio: a weekend guide to getting it done. If you work with screens + digital stuff, I bet you'll dig it.
In the past, I helped build + grow a company called American Parkour. Our mission was (and still is) to promote, teach, and advance the discipline of parkour. I was a professional athlete, sponsored + paid to travel the world, inspiring others to move.
Starting to catch the pattern here? Nutrition, fitness, health... it all runs close to my heart.
I also ran a design studio called Enchant, helping small businesses and startups build authentic companies through software. Nowadays, it's what Brittany and I use to explore our fun projects.
You can find me on Twitter waxing on about things I care about (like design, psychology, startup-y topics, technology, and people. I love people.) For a glimspe into things that make *me* happy, you can catch my Instagram feed here.Peruse my design portfolio
Design, psychology, nurturing companies, and other such madness, as it delights oneself.
