Paul is an author, investigative journalist, TV and broadcaster with the ABC.
I was born in Seymour, Victoria, while Dad was in the Army at Puckpunyal. We moved to Seaford, next to Frankston, when I was a two. My first big playground was a new housing estate.
I’ve only ever been a journalist, unless you count my doomed teenage stints as a KFC cook and construction site labourer.
Covering clergy sex abuse and cover-ups. Writing Hell on the Way to Heaven with Chrissie Foster and making the documentary Undeniable (ABC) were life changing. Chrissie and her husband Anthony helped survivors find some peace; they also helped improve child safety.
I’ve written for Penguin Random House, Hardie Grant, Hachette, and Affirm Press.
My hobbies are watching my children play sport and coaching football-cricket. I’m also keen on coffee and friends and the local beach.
If you’ve seen me before, I was either wearing a suit jacket as The Sports Bloke on ABC News Breakfast or trackie dacks at Frankston library.
