After grooming a management team to run the company, Paul founded Vision Mechanix where he developed the QuietSpacing® method to address the demands the modern day hyper-kinetic working environment places on us.

At the second, GemStone Systems, Inc., he also managed operations for the rapidly growing, 35-person professional services department serving a Fortune 500 client base. During Paul’s tenure as corporate counsel he taught as an adjunct law professor, developed and participated in continuing education courses, and consulted start-ups during their emergent stages.
