Australian storyteller, didjeridoo player and traveller. He comes to the U.S. from Adelaide, South Australia, on the invitation of Bobby Bridger and the Adelaide-Austin, TX, sister city program.

Bridger performed his acclaimed one-man show “Ballad of the West," on a tour of the outback and to the Pitjantatjara Aboriginal community in the red heart of the country.
Becoming close friends, Bridger invited Paul to the U.S. to Texas and then travel with him to Wyoming to act as a “mountain man” in his company version of “Ballad of the West” performing at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming.
