Paul splits his time between Newport, Rhode Island and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, depending on the season.

During his 40-year career Paul has had a long association with Sparkman & Stephens racing on many famous S&S yachts, working alongside Rod Stephens as an independent consultant to Nautor Swan, consulting with Olin Stephens while managing the refurbishment of Dorade upon her return to US waters to name but a few examples. He is a co-founder of Sail Newport, Rhode Island's Public Sailing Center and past President of the International Twelve Meter Class.

Paul maintains a USCG captain’s license and has sailed, raced and inspected yachts in the Americas, Finland and Scandinavia, northern and southern Europe, the British Isles, the Caribbean and Oceania.

His varied experience has provided Paul with a colorful palette from which to draw knowledge, comparisons and conclusions about yachts, their design, construction and intended purpose.
