"Paul has helped me develop the strategic vision for my organization, FiLMS for World Peace. I have leaned on him heavily as a thinking and learning partner, and I have always walked away with more clarity of purpose and a new way of seeing old things. He has helped ground me when my dreams were too high up in the clouds with no direction, and he has inspired me when I felt I was hitting walls. One of Paul’s greatest gifts is deep listening that leads to pragmatic problem solving. In short, Paul helped me imagine, organize and implement crucial stepping-stones in my journey towards trying to create a different kind of film production, education and festival program where our vision is to “transform conflict into discovery”.
