Paul has been working in the arts for over 26 years in a variety of roles. He trained at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and worked extensively in theatre, TV and film as both an actor and director for many years. This included playing lead roles in the West End and being the first actor from the West to play a lead role on Chinese TV in an epic, 21 hour-long series, with a weekly audience of over two hundred million.
Paul retrained in Arts Marketing 18 years ago and used his new found skills to fill in the gaps between his acting work. He very quickly built a loyal customer base and in 2003 founded Consider This UK, now one of the UK’s leading Arts Marketing companies.
Paul's background in performing, directing and producing; combined with his knowledge of managing a successful arts marketing company, fits perfectly with the ethos, philosophy and drive behind The Forge Initiative
