Paul has worked in the Australian screen industry for 15 years as a writer, script editor and script producer. He has a passion for compelling, heartfelt storytelling, and believes content for younger viewers should be just as emotionally complex, thematically rich, and (most importantly!) edge-of-your-seat entertaining as content for grown-ups.
