About Paul

I'm a freelance audio producer, writer, and writing coach currently based in Santa Barbara, CA. Podcasts include a monthly longform narrative storytelling show, CBB VOICES, and interview-style show for nonfiction writers. I come from a background in print journalism -- features, essays & reporting -- and in creative nonfiction (CNF). In addition to writing for the New York Times, Boston Globe, Washington Post & other outlets, I'm also the editor of Lost Tribe: Jewish Fiction from the Edge (HarperPerennial).
