Paul gave a guest lecture to my Communications class at around AUT 13 years ago that changed the course of my life. His vision for the future of this new “internet” thing was so inspiring that it shaped my future on the spot. I chased after him afterwards, bought him a coffee and soon after that he and Helen gave me my first job in the web business.
I regret losing touch in recent years, but I’ll always be grateful to both of them for that start, and for their friendship over the next few years which included some very memorable parties!
Paul’s passion and vision were always intoxicating. His stories were always hilarious – even the 2nd or 3rd time around ;)
I'm so glad to have known him, and my heart and thoughts are with Helen at this terribly sad time.
