Paul grew up in Valley City, ND where the only thing to do was drink and break shit. Around 2003 he moved away to Fargo and soon after started playing in bands. He did some touring, meeting a bunch of bands, one being Anal Blast. That’s when he became friends with Don Decker (RIP 5SRC President Emeritus) and found out about the club. Paul started prospecting under Don and was patched in at a benefit show he organized for Don after Don had become ill. Fast forward a few years and a few bands and here we are.

Paul’s main goals are to take things as far with Gorgatron as possible, help out other bands looking to travel through his area or looking to tour, and just overall do his part to help the metal scene thrive.
