Paul strives to help others discover their path, facilitating learning experiences in diverse environments for all.

Paul is a graduate of the Capilano University Wilderness Leadership Program, Outdoor Recreation Management Program, as well as the Royal Roads University MA Environmental Education and Communication program.
