Paul holds a degree in geography from the University of New Hampshire where he focused in urbanism and development. His recent work aims to revitalize his post-industrial hometown of Somersworth, New Hampshire via policy, community and small business development, historic preservation, and place-making. He is currently pursuing his master of city planning in MIT’s department of urban studies and planning, in the city design and development group. While at MIT Paul has sought to advance his understanding of design, preservation, and economic development.
As a dual degree candidate, Paul joins the Center for Real Estate to further his understanding of real estate finance, development, and investment markets.
Looking forward to a career as a “benevolent developer,” Paul seeks to use real estate development as a tool to bring about positive change in the built environment, with particular interest in creating vibrate urban places that benefit communities and investors through sound planning, innovative design, and shared value creation.
With family in the Netherlands and New Hampshire, Paul balances his time between Boston, Amsterdam, and New Hampshire. He enjoys urban exploration, hiking, photography, and travel and has recently developed a penchant for bicycle infrastructure and urban cycling.
