Get to Know Paul

“I love the world of higher education. What other industry has such a massive impact on the world? A student with a college or university degree lives longer, is healthier and more financially secure than their non-degreed peers. Colleges and universities are alive with thought, science, experimentation, challenges of the status quo and create the future leaders of society, politics and business. What could be more exciting than creating great technology that is critical for this industry?”
