An active marine researcher in Palau with a Masters Degree in Marine Science, Paul has worked in and around the dive industry in Palau for over 8 years. Paul's interest and one of his research topics is spawning aggregations. Other than the spectacle of these event, Paul aims to understand why these aggregations happen at these locations. By researching these sites and documenting the behavior on video, collecting additional info such as bathymetry data, Paul has been able to build a picture of these locations that he hopes will help him understand why these spectacular events happen at these special locations. In addition to his active research Paul finds time to shoot for many different production companies most recently working on the BBC NHU production SHARK. Paul shoots with a RED Epic Dragon inside a Gates housing using a JJ CCR.
