An avid lover of cooking and baking, Paul is no stranger to the kitchen. After college, Paul spent 3 years working in a high-end restaurant in Boston run by a James Beard award winning chef. In 2008, Paul decided to make the transition to the housewares industry and settled in Atlanta, his hometown. Paul has spent the past 12 years managing gourmet retail stores and cooking schools in the Metro-Atlanta area, the last five of which have been at The Cook's Warehouse Midtown location. When he's not at the store, Paul enjoys gardening and spending time with his Pomeranian, Thomas.
