Paul is founder of Lionheart gay theatre, a pioneering company started in the late 1970s to produce gay works.

Paul writes: “I just completed a 40-year career as a scene designer for theater and film. Though I’m continuing my design work in New Orleans, where I’ve worked for 30 years, I’ve stopped in Chicago to concentrate on several of my own projects before I lose my eyesight or arthritis kicks in. I did 451 productions. My work has been seen in every state and on other continents as well. I also produced, acted, wrote and directed for theater.”

At Lionheart, Paul writes: “We put ourselves totally as a service to all the organizations of the time. Giving 100% of the box office to the groups each of our 40 productions was benefiting.”
