Paul DJ Profile

After Paul's artistic career peaked by finishing 2nd in a pre-school art contest with a "Where the Wild Things Are" interpretive piece, he quickly realized his role would be a curator.  Between editing fanzines, booking tours, releasing records, and promoting concerts, he's done everything except being the artist.  This tradition continues on CHIRP as he scours the globe for choice cuts.

When he's not at CHIRP, Paul runs his own marketing company out of his home in Portage Park.
