Paul was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 19 after his freshman year at college. He went 7 (!) years having met only one other person living with T1D before attending Diabetes Training Camp in 2013. After attending a few camps, he learned the tools to manage T1D. It took years of tweaking and experimenting, but it eventually led to finishing Ironman Lake Placid in 2017 and Ironman Wisconsin in 2019. Paul has served in various roles on staff at DTC and is also a USA Cycling Level 3 coach. He considers himself to be a walking medical file, but that does not get in the way of trying anything new or any athletic endeavor. Paul finds he is most comfortable on his bicycle throughout his current home state of Tennessee and is active in his local cycling and triathlon groups.
