He then resided in Chicago as a working actor in regional theater, industrial film and commercials, and has been a proud member of Actors’ Equity, SAG and AFTRA for over 20 years. His career took a spectacular turn when he became an original cast member in the first national touring company of Miss Saigon, which was produced by Cameron Mackintosh and led by acclaimed director Nicholas Hytner. The company toured 12 cities over four years, and included a performance for President Clinton and family at the Kennedy Center.
Paul also lived in Los Angeles for several years, where he became Director of Classes and lead voice instructor for Vivace Conservatory-- a non-profit performing arts school located in the heart of Los Angeles’ Chinatown formed by Asian professional actors to nurture young Asian-American talent.

With over 10 years of experience teaching voice to children, adults and groups-- it has continually been Paul’s philosophy to ensure that his students not only learn to sing and breathe in a healthy way, but also to show them the performance and movement skills they need to sing in front of an audience. His teaching style is to make voice lessons fun and informative, find out your singing goals and assess any vocal issues that need to be addressed. Paul gives you full understanding of breath support and placement, helps you understand how to sing through your “break” to smooth out the transition between your chest and head voices and make you the most versatile singer you can be. Together you’ll work on the songs you want to sing, plus with his extensive knowledge of musical theater, pop songs and other genres, give you ideas to expand your song repertoire. His theater training will help you with the acting and “physicalization” of a song, whether you are preparing songs for auditions or other performances.
