    Paul grew up a Las Vegan then became a Seattleite, New Yorker, and San Franciscan. Sprinkle in some Shanghaier, Berliner, and Amsterdamer influences in there as well. He's road tripped across America and loves experiencing new things. Call him a foodie. Call him eccentric. He's anything but static. 

    His mantra is to embrace life knowing that it's not always about the height of his logic but more about the depth of his conviction. He loves advertising. If you do too, you would make good friends.

    About the NSAC

    The National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC) is an annual competition sponsored by the American Advertising Federation (AAF). Each year, a national corporate sponsor provides a case study outlining the history of its product and current advertising situation. The case study reflects a real world situation to challenge students' critical thinking abilities and creativity. 

    Students teams from college advertising and marketing programs across the country research the product and its competition, identify potential problems and develop an integrated communications campaign for the client. Each team then "pitches" its campaign to a panel of judges. 

    More than 150 colleges and universities take on the National Student Advertising Competition every year. Since its inception in 1973, more than 150,000 advertising professionals across the nation have jump-started their careers through the NSAC.

    The 2014 NSAC Sponsor is Mary Kay.
