Hi, I’m Paul and thanks for visiting.  This website archives things I’ve written over the past 20 years or so, including my weekly columns for the Albion News, letters, speeches, essays etc.  It also gives an overview of my work as a musician, in the community and in the field of rural development.



In addition to my work as a writer and musician, I’ve been co-director of the Albion Area Arts Council with my wife Lori since 2005 and Secretary/Treasurer of the Boone County Historical Society since 2007.  I was also a member of the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission from 2007 – 2015, and am active in several educational outreach projects.
