And now, a little about Paul from Paul...
I was bitten by the "film" bug the day I walked onto the Paramount lot for a summer internship over 20 years ago. They called the back lot departments ArtCraft back then, and all I knew was that it was this amazing, dynamic blend of creativity and technical support, and I wanted to be a part of it. I was exposed to Set Construction, Camera, Grip, Set Lighting... really every department that works together to 'get the shot'. In a word... awesome!

After a good run at Paramount, I found myself in Las Vegas to finish my degree at UNLV. There, I hooked up with a Gaffer and his growing rental company. That was trial-by-fire for sure, but working with Production, DPs, and Gaffers across hundreds of on-set days and nights truly was the best education a person could get.

But this education had to be applied somewhere, and that place became Mole-Richardson Co. Recruited to open the Eastern part of the US, I was the first employee in over 40 years to work outside of the Hollywood headquarters.

Fast-forward 15 years and hundreds of thousands of air miles, I've now traveled extensively around the world to work with cinematographers, lighting professionals and equipment providers of all sizes. I have a deep understanding of the ever-changing and growing technical needs of production and the demands placed on suppliers. It's this diverse experience, as well as a love of great customer service, that makes The Camera House and me such an ideal match. We also share a helluva sense of humor.
