Paul is an actor, director, musician, and communications professional. He has a master's degree in political management from George Washington University, which isn't getting a lot of use. His work has been published at outlets including CNN.com, Skeptical Inquirer, Dark Mountain, Friendly Atheist, and in a few posts featured by Medium that even Ev Williams said he liked. Paul was once the host of the podcast Point of Inquiry, which was cool. His personal blog is Near-Earth Object. He is a dad. He lives in Maine, which is fine.
