Paul's headshot


Paul is a proud West Virginian who grew up Appalachia with his mom and dad, brother, and two sisters (who he is convinced are saints after putting up with his over-the-top antics). After graduating from Wheeling Jesuit University, he embarked on a life-changing adventure to the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota as a Jesuit Volunteer.

Paul studied theology at the University of Dayton and served as a campus minister in Athens, Ohio where he met his beautiful bride, Molly. When not listening to local music, Paul can be found riding his bike, woodworking, and talking social justice over a good cup of coffee.
