Paul has spoken and given workshops on roses all over the United States and even in Italy.  Before turning to roses he spend 15 years as a Stand-Up Comedian, Comedy Writer and Comedy Segment Producer on ABC – performing for crowds from 50 to 5000.  This background coupled with his fresh outlook on rose growing roses make for an energetic, humorous and informative talk.
