As a young journalist, Paul traveled to London, where he produced radio stories on the royal family and covered breaking news for an American audience. He went on to cover education, the courts and the U.S. military, even witnessing armed conflict before his publishing career took him to less dangerous international fronts as an executive editor for McGraw-Hill and as editor-in-chief of QSU Publishing. It was these positions specializing in business-to-business content and his subsequent work at Peoplefluent, a software company, where he gained a reputation as a skilled marketer, developing white papers, powerful email campaigns, websites, and social media posts. Based in South Florida, Paul can be reached at 703.980.0097 or isoeditor@aol.com.
