Trained in the classics and a former ordained pastor, Paul has a deep understanding of the liturgical traditions of the church, and the connection between those traditions and the architecture in which they are housed. Paul has 25 years of professional practice solely invested in guiding churches in the creation of facilities responsive to the needs, the sensibilities and the culture of the church. He works nationally and speaks often at liturgical conferences.
