Paul's short term goal is to attend law school at Wayne State and receive a joint J.D./M.A. degree. His long term career goal is to either serve as a commericial arbitrator or as a mediator for the Arab/Israeli conflict.

Paul's hobbies include fitness training, traveling, playing video games and religously watching the Detroit Lions and the Michigan Wolverines play. He has been to the Middle East and has backpacked throughout Western Europe. His next ideal vacation is spending a few weeks in the Greek Isles.
