You won’t find Paul at the Country Club or the Golf Course. Instead, he’ll be at the gym, running the Riverwalk in downtown Tampa, still serving in the Army-Reserves, on his Harley with the American Legion Riders, power boating and sailing the Gulf Coast, or just driving around in his pick-up truck with his front seat dog, Jax.
Paul believes that the key to harnessing the exceptional talents of our military veterans in the corporate world is a combination of business guidance, legal counsel, and entrepreneurial innovation. He is an accomplished military, legal, and financial officer who operates at the nexus of military strategy, corporate governance, and entrepreneurship to affect lasting worldwide change. Growing up in the Ironbound—a tight-knit working-class Portuguese neighborhood in Newark, NJ—he learned firsthand the importance of a strong work ethic and loyalty to the community. These convictions still drive him to enhance the world around him while working to create opportunities for his military community.
A polyglot, Paul speaks four languages—English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French—and understands the importance of culture and the strength of diversity. Paul is a Bachelor of Accounting, a Juris Doctor, a Certified Public Accountant, and a Certified Fraud Examiner. He is licensed to practice law in Florida, New Jersey, and New York, and has the highest-level security clearance: Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmentalized Information.
