“I loved working with Paul. He is creative, bright and fun. He has a mind for marketing, and all the focus and energy to make ideas happen.”

Alan Mason
President, K-LOVE and Air1 Radio Network

“Paul is a catalyst to the gifts in others. He is passionate about God, family, radio, injustice, children, and whatever he is focused on. Thankfully, he continues to help me focus and grow. For your team, your project, or your personal professional growth, he will infuse passion and help you make important, strategic decisions.”

Lisa Williams
Host of Life with Lisa Williams

“I can’t recommend Paul highly enough. He knows his stuff. He’s a joy to work with. But even better: He understands the wider culture – what people are really looking for when they tune in. Paul asks the right questions, and he just makes things sound better. I can’t think of a station that wouldn’t profit from spending time with him.”

Brant Hansen
Author and Host of The Brant Hansen Show

“I have never worked with someone with so much energy! Paul is one of those people who understands that in order to find that one great idea that works, you have to sift through a lot of ideas that don’t work! He never gives up, and is passionate about what he has his hands in. Paul was great to work with, and I hope our paths can cross again one day!”

I LOVE that song!

“Oh man, I love that one.” How many times have you heard this? A song on the radio ends, and the DJ says, "Oh man, I love that song!" I don’t care. Because the fact that you like that song is not about me. The fact that you like that song is not topical, relevant, or...
