Paul began writing transformative poetry in his teens. Born in 1968 in the San Francisco Bay area, he was exposed to the amazing variety of music, cultures, and events happening in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. His father was a Berkeley cop and Paul occasionally rode with him. He also listened to his father’s stories of WWII. His listened to his older siblings talk about music, political theory and questions about their Catholic upbringing. His poetry represents his path into spirituality, self-awareness and self-forgetting as a greater Oneness made itself evident in his life. He invites you to freely go wherever you need to go as you read them.
