During a successful career as a Mechanical and Computer Engineer, Paul became an Herbalife Independent Distributor in 1987 and was introduced to the Personal Wellness and Personal Development industries by Herbalife founder Mark Hughes, the “Billion Dollar Man” - Larry Thompson and America’s foremost business philosopher - Jim Rohn.

During his youth he was an English national standard competitive swimmer representing his home town of Bury St Edmunds and also a Suffolk County swimmer. In his late teens and continuing throughout his life he has studied various forms of martial arts including Karate, Thai Chi and Qi Gong.

In 2007 he achieved one of his lifelong goals by becoming only the 873rd person in history to swim The English Channel. In 2008 he did it again becoming only the 84th person in history to swim it twice. In the same year, he became the oldest known person to represent Great Britain at swimming when he competed in two FINA World Cup Open Water Grand Prix swims in Serbia and Mexico respectively. Then is 2010, he completed his third crossing of the English Channel as part of a six person relay team.

In 2008 he and his wife Beccy started Body and Mind Studio International Ltd, providing personalised Naturopathic Nutrition advice and coaching, as well as Motivational Speaking based on setting and achieving your goals - whatever they may be.

Paul is the CEO of Body and Mind Studio International, a Naturopathic Health Coach, a Master of Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s Institute of Human Individuality, a Certified NLP Practitioner and a Certified John Maxwell Team Member. He is currently writing two books. The first is with Jim Rohn’s 18 year business partner, Kyle Wilson, called “Bringing Value, Solving Problems and Leaving a Legacy”. The second is called “Beyond The Black Line - The Journey to France” about Paul’s journey leading up to completing his first English Channel Swim on July 10, 2007.

Paul’s mission in life is to pass on his experience and knowledge to as many people as possible, across the world to enable them achieve their personal wellness and business/sporting goals.
