Ever since his mom brought home an x386 and a 2400-baud modem, Paul has been drawn to communities that are motivated by a common desire to help each other. Paul's personal motivation for working at Threadloom is to restore personal dignity on the Internet, and he's excited to work with an incredible team that practices this daily in person.

Prior to Threadloom, Paul worked at Google, McKinsey, and Foundation Strategy Group. He has served with International Justice Mission, World Relief, and the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative. He studied at Stanford and Harvard and lives in Palo Alto with his wife, a physician and homeschool instructor, and their two children.
