I'm Paul. I'm from New Jersey, but currently live in Brooklyn West Harlem, NY. I'm a Graphic Design major at School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. I like music a lot, all types. I like certain films, comic books and works of animation. I really like giant robots, to an almost obsessive level.

A pair of quotes:

"You said you were joining the team."
"But the team's not joining me."
-Our Man Flint

"A designer knows he has achieved perfection
not when there is nothing left to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
