Paul is the principal architect of a practice based in Sydney working on urban, rural and remote area architectural projects throughout Australia and overseas. He is also one of three directors of Healthabitat, the other two directors have medical and environmental health backgrounds.

For 28 years Healthabitat has worked to improve the health of Indigenous people, by improving their living environment and housing, in suburban, rural and remote areas of Australia. Over the last 6 years similar work has expanded to projects in rural areas of Nepal and urban USA.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
