Headshot

Hi, I’m Paul.

I’m a Partner at Area 120, Google’s internal incubator. I live in the Bay Area and grew up in Canada.

I started my career as an entrepreneur. In 2009, I cofounded Learndot, a learning technology company, and was CEO for 5 years. You can learn more about that time in the Blog Archive. Before Learndot, I developed a collaborative translation product in China ahead of the Beijing Olympics.

In 2014, Learndot was acquired by a company in Palo Alto and I had the chance to move to California. Finding myself in Silicon Valley, I wanted to learn from the best and build products that help people around the world. I have been lucky enough to do just that – first at Twitter and now at Google.
