Paul studied Politics and Governance at Ryerson University. His working-class background has shaped his passion for working toward an effective and accessible social safety net. His resolve for these issues was further solidified after a workplace injury caused his father to lose his job unexpectedly. He has worked on several campaigns for progressive politicians and continues to take an active part in politics. A total geek polymath, Paul is well-versed in the world of video games, comic books and collectable toys. To his great dismay, his encyclopedic knowledge of DC Comics characters has yet to come in handy while organizing.
