As a Sommelier and Barsmith, Paul began his culinary career as a sous chef at Esselon Café in Hadley, MA where he was inspired to learn more about beer, wine, and spirits through food pairing. His understanding of both cuisine and the complexity of beverage pairings contributes to his vast wine lists and cocktail menus with a strong focus on small batch wineries and distilleries from Southern California to the Mediterranean.
After attending college in Massachusetts and Colorado, Paul relocated to Southern California where he obtained his intermediate and advanced certificates from the Wine & Spirits Global Trust in 2007 and 2008, respectively. In spring 2009, he passed his Introductory Level with the Court of Master Sommeliers and journeyed to New Zealand to work as a Cellar Hand and learn more about winemaking directly.
Returning to Southern California, Paul has worked in a number of high-profile eateries such as Joe Miller’s Bar Pintxo in Santa Monica along with Mercantile and District, both located in Hollywood, where he developed the establishment’s wine, beer and spirits lists. In 2011, Paul followed his mentor Chef Kris Morningstar and opened Patina Restaurant Group’s award-winning Ray’s & Stark Bar located at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Currently Paul curates the extensive wine list and seasonal cocktail menu for Ray’s & Stark Bar making it a destination for wine enthusiasts and cocktail lovers alike.
