Paul has always believed it’s naive to think art and design can change the world. But that hasn’t stopped him from trying. Led by the notion that nobody sits around waiting for a brands’ next tweet, post, or piece of content, he is constantly searching for bold ideas and new ways to engage.
This philosophy has guided his work and the people he’s partnered with. Early in his career he created the groundbreaking NBA campaign that featured Bill Murray quitting comedy to play pro basketball. While at Goodby, Silverstein he honed his craft, launched a drama network and produced notable work for Nike and Cracker Jack. At Leo Burnett he joined the leadership team, won business and continued to push traditional companies to think and act non-traditionally.
An opportunity to pursue more digital experiences led to a return to the West Coast, a fruitful partnership with Microsoft and the co-founding of Division of Labor. With a client list that also included Dropbox, Ford, Live Nation and Roku, his agency created memorable campaigns, published an Amazon-charting book and was twice named a Small Agency of the Year by Ad Age.
Currently, Paul is the Chief Creative Officer at Doremus, leading a diverse creative department of writers, designers, strategists and producers in SF and NY.
With his unique background as an art director, agency founder and executive, Paul has a valuable perspective on how to produce meaningful content, mentor talent and help run a business that people actually enjoy coming into day after day.
His honors include an Emmy, inclusion in the permanent collection of MOMA and awards from The One Show, Cannes, Communication Arts, The Clios, The Art Directors Club, and D&AD.
