Paul spent the first decade plus of his career in the closet a decision he regrets noting the overwhelming positive response from management chain as well as clients and colleagues alike since he came out. Reflecting on why it took him so long to come out Paul notes it was the lack of visible role models at the time. Paul strongly believes people perform better when they can bring their true selves to the office and are not trying to hide anything. Paul strongly believes in the importance of role models and notes you cannot be what you don’t see..
