PAUL-i (BMusEd, MMus) is an international Music Producer/Engineer, Songwriter, Educator and Artist. As an accomplished musician he has performed to crowds of 60,000 and has worked alongside a large number of music industry heavyweights. He has returned to Australia after living in London and is now Head Producer/Engineer at our newly launched MusicPro (Australia).
Although Paul is an accomplished musician and has worked with many great artists, Paul's unique ability comes in the way he uses his wealth of experience, educational understanding and technical skill when drawing the best out of others and helping artists to shine.
Paul’s early industry background was in the CCM (Christian Contemporary Music) genre. Through his early work with Hillsong (later sub-published with EMI in Nashville), his songs were released and published in 136 countries on award-winning albums. He later moved to London and expanded into mainstream where he worked on a wide diversity of music projects ranging from Symphony Orchestra to Indie Punk. Whilst there, Paul began specialising in a more comprehensive role as Producer, Music Director and Songwriter working with a wide range of artists. Concurrently, his committed work with philanthropic and church communities meant Paul managed to maintain a strong hand in education whilst working in the music industry at large. His experience and connections in the music industry continue to centre around London, Milan, and Nashville - enabling a comprehensive network for his ongoing projects.
With a recent development in artist representation and publishing, Paul is currently working on advert, song and recording projects with music industry entities in London, Milan, Los Angeles, New York and Nashville. Since returning to Australia, he has worked on a number of projects with artists such as David Moyse (Air Supply), Mark Wilkinson (known for the Nescafe' advertisement music), Oliver Tank (over 2 million hits on Spotify), and emerging band The Expol from Newcastle (who quickly reached #1 on the Triple J Unearthed Indie charts after their release with Paul - they are currently finishing studies before their next anticipated release).

Paul’s formal training (Conservatorium of Music/University of Sydney) includes both a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education and a Masters in Music with a focus on Music Technology and Curriculum Design. Paul was co-founder of the Worship Music School at Hillsong International Leadership College (Australia), which now boasts hundreds of international students. He has written for Radio Times (UK) and worked with BBC Worldwide on the design for national music and creativity programs. He was a lecturer and course writer for SBCS, Wesley Institute for the Arts and other such institutions. He co-founded the International Creative Academy in London and he designed and implemented the Music Faculty for the West Finland School of Performing Arts where he lectured as Head of Music.
Paul was significantly involved in the formative years of Youth Alive NSW, where he wrote and performed many songs for their packed stadium concerts. Paul’s more recent concert appearances as a solo artist have included national TV performances in a variety of countries, primarily Italy, where he aims to support mostly CCM and church communities.
Today, Paul continues to work as a producer/musician/songwriter and tour as well as devoting extensive amounts of time to charity, church and other philanthropic and educational community initiatives.
