“As both an actor and director Paul is consistently a resource full of imaginative ideas but at the same time he has always been willing to hear the opinions of others and defer to those that might be better than his own. As a director, Paul is a refreshing eye and will always have something outside of the conventional norm to offer in any given situation.  In my experience with him he could be remarkably devoid of ego.  He is a talented and devoted theatre artist and one that you will find brings a fresh perspective and a great love of the art form to all that he does.”

  • Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom...and more

    Ok. So Obviously I don’t write a lot of blogs.  I prefer to speak through my work.  I spend all my time thinking and working on whatever projects I can find, manufacture or just plain luck into.  I am “nerdly” obsessed.  A lot has been happening since the last time I made a post.  I just finished directing David Zellnik’s Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom at defunkt  theatre.

  • How Time Flies...

    It's hard to believe so many months have passed since I last posted an entry on this blog.  So much has happened since the successful run of Big River last spring.  I am currently directing the Oregon premier of Jason Robert Brown's '13'  which will open in February of 2012. The company I am a part of, Staged!

  • Big River

    When Les Mis closed in 2008 the first thing I said to Staged! artistic director, Chanda Hall, was “Let’s do Big River next!”  Les Mis was the first All-star production produced by Staged!  The Annual All-star production brings together the most talented High School and College actors (and occasionally younger) in the greater Portland metro area to create theatre in a conservatory setting.
