It’s Paul

By day, I oversee product and growth strategy at Publicis Commerce.

By night (and, generally, outside of work), you’ll find me somewhere in the midwest, probably typing away, reading a book, gardening outside, walking the dog, indulging in food, brewing coffee, kayaking a lake, watching some kind of screen entertainment, or… crushing a beer at a dive bar while ripping through pull tabs.


  • Previously lived in Chicago and Madison
  • Currently holed up in St. Paul, MN with my partner and my dog
