Paul ensures Carve is in a league above and beyond its global competition, while helping its clients grow and enable entire industries to bloom. Although he was raised in Austin, Texas, it was the city’s large games, VR and tech industries, as well as the many high-profile thought leaders and events like SXSW inspired him to base the agency here. He sees his team as family and treats them like entrepreneurs instead of staff and only brings clients on board the team will have a strong connection with.
Paul has lived in New York, Los Angeles and Denver and has traveled to more than 30 countries, but his heart is in Austin. He loves the energy, creativity and soul of the city as it offers one of the richest cultures he’s seen.
