About Paul

Paul grew up in a humble environment. His family never had much, but they strived to always make the most out of what they did have. After a tragic accident, Paul’s brother was afforded a settlement. He decided to make the most of a terrible situation, using the settlement proceeds to pay for Paul to attend private school. This opportunity was the foundation for Paul’s future. He was introduced to a totally different environment of high character, great education and, of course, football. This launchpad led Paul to attend the University of New Orleans, where he was introduced to the Northwestern Mutual Financial Representative Internship, which was and still is the #1 internship in financial services. Upon graduation in 2008 with a double major in Business Administration and Marketing, Paul launched his financial planning practice at Northwestern Mutual.

Today, Paul considers it an honor to serve his clients and his team of advisors with a pure heart and genuine care to always do the best thing for them. His humble upbringings are a great reminder that wealth, when stewarded well, can create tremendous impact. His detailed approach and charismatic personality are a great fit for the advanced planning his high net worth clients require.

A father of three, Paul and his wife of 14 years, Kolby, call Mandeville home. He spends his time away from the office running triathlons, reading, weight lifting, and coaching little league soccer. Recently, he was afforded the opportunity to join his church community on a mission trip to Egypt.
