Paul began his professional acting career while still an undergraduate at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. In his Junior year, he played a middle-aged South Asian to great acclaim in the title role of "The Indian Wants the Bronx." After this initial success, he promptly quit the theater.
Years later, the call of acting drew him back into performing in a series of plays and musicals. As luck would have it, he often got paid for his work. Eventually, he appeared on 2 different episodes of “Law & Order”. (You can currently see him on re-runs.)
In all of these performances, he portrayed a variety of South Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean men most of whom were either middle-aged or near and/or beyond death.
