Paul grew up on Long Island and began exploring music slowly by ear. Their early training came from the low brass section of the school band. At this time they participated in a variety of bands and orchestras and performed an Eastern European tour and at Carnegie Hall. For college they studied music education at SUNY Fredonia but primarily focused on jazz and classical piano studies. Also at this time they began writing music and recording music with students in the school studios.  

After graduation in 2016 they moved to Buffalo, NY where they began freelancing as a musician. They were hired by the University of Buffalo to accompany ballet and modern classes. While living in Buffalo they also worked as a musical theater director, jazz lounge pianist and singer-songwriter. Highlights of this time include mixed media theater performances at Nietzche's, jazz performances at Pausa Art House, and starting their own band called "the Everythingness" which released a self-titled EP in 2017.

In 2018 they moved to Chicago and began accompanying dance at the major Chicago movement studios including Hubbard Street Dance and the Ruth Page Center for the Arts. During this period they honed in on their skills as a professional pianist, perfecting their technique and learning a variety of covers and writing more original songs. With the onset of the 2020 pandemic Paul turned his focus to recording and produced a set of EPs featuring original songs and soundscapes. For a brief period in 2021 Paul moved to Austin, TX and worked with Ballet Austin and performed with the band "Deja Vibes".

In 2023 Paul was hired by The Second City theater in Chicago to work as a music director for the BlueCo touring ensemble. He is consistently writing and recording new music and collaborating with dancers and musicians across Chicago and beyond.
