Paul graduated from Utah State University, where he received his bachelor’s degree and minor in civil engineering and computer science, respectively. Growing up in big cities, like Tampa and New York, motivated Paul to study the complex ways humans interact with their environment. Paul used his programming skillset to research residential water, agricultural water, and transportation networks, the latter being applicable during his tenure at the Utah Department of Transportation. Paul is passionate about safety, transportation equity, and using his scripting and object-oriented computer fluencies to see the human elements of road networks. Paul’s favorite hobbies are adventuring outside, reading, writing music and poetry, and picking flavor of the month interests (this month, these interests include crocheting and handstand walking).
