Paul served in the U.S. Navy from 1980 to 1986 rising to the rank of lieutenant.

He earned many commendations and awards during his service; among them were the Meritorious Unit Commendation, Admiral Flatley Memorial Award, Commanding Officer's Letter of Commendation and the Navy Expeditionary Medal.

Paul left the Navy to study graphic design, and he joined OSU in 1990. In addition to his work on marketing projects, he also mentors University Marketing's student design interns. He also volunteers to mentor Upward Bound students interested in graphic design.

In addition to praise from clients, his work has earned more than 45 state and national awards for excellence, including two Celebrate State awards from OSU as well as honors from the University and College Designers Association and the Oklahoma College Public Relations Association.


Paul has a great deal of experience leading projects and working with clients from all corners of OSU.

He is well-versed in a variety of media from the smallest brochure up to the largest magazine. Also, his communications background makes him particularly adept at helping clients refine their message and develop a publication design that fits, creating an end product that effectively communicates a client's message.
