Paul studied computer science and theoretical physics for his degree from Trinity College, Cambridge and later did post-graduate studies in International Finance. He is a concert-grade classical pianist and likes to play Rachmaninov. He reads so long as the book is interesting, and never if it isn't (even if it's on his academic course) and does crosswords when he’s not socializing, and often even when he is. He maintains a keen interest in mentalism (think 'Derren Brown') to the point of researching enough for a book or two, and is currently starting a company that he hopes will be as stimulating a challenge in the coming years as he's found it so far. He also gives the company permission to make him insanely wealthy in the process.
