As the acting Technical Director of a Las Vegas digital media / advertising agency, Paul helped the agency secure a multi-million dollar digital brand delivery contract. Previously, the agency had a significant traditional advertising and media business, but lacked a solid web development and digital delivery capability infrastructure.

The agency won the $2.6M bid, and Paul continued to build and lead the technology team to a successful delivery
Meet Paul Personally
After hours, Paul can often be found strapping on a guitar and doing his best Eddie Van Knopfler impersonation with his band, Prime Number, doing rock and blues covers to raise funds for local schools and charities, some corporate and private functions, and the occasional public show. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, he shares his wife’s passion for horses and organic farming.
Paul’s current big project is a new home, with indoor riding arena, and laying the groundwork for self-sustaining organic vegetable production.
