Paul graduated with a degree in French and European studies from Keele University in the UK, followed by post-graduate certification in education [Master’s degree] from the University Of Manchester (UK), before starting his career as a teacher. Having become more and more involved in IT projects through the course of his teaching profession, including chairing technology-liaison committees, assisting with the transfer of student systems, and assisting other faculty retrain with new information systems, he decided to change his focus from teaching to technology.
After moving to Washington DC, he earned his Masters of Science degree in Information Systems Technology at the George Washington University. Since then, he has been employed by Sigma Systems, Inc., seconded to the Washington, DC Office. He is employed on a number of projects, including identity management and the Kuali initiative. He has also been active in work with LETSI, SIF, PESC and other standards bodies.
Most recently, Paul’s focus has been on architecting the Kuali Student Accounts product, an innovative student accounts receivable package which will become part of the Kuali Student suite of software.
