Paul first went to Haiti in 2008, long before the devastating earthquake of 2010. A true storyteller, Paul had gone to the country to try and find a man he had heard about who had been working in Haiti's slums for over 20 years. "It sounded like myth more than fact, what he'd been able to do, and so I frankly didn't believe it," says Paul. After finding the man and observing his work, Paul saw he was able "to do so much with so little." The experience compelled him to start Artists for Peace and Justice, a charity organization that supports communities in Haiti through programs in education. "We decided that we weren't going to solve Haiti's problems, the Haitians were," he says.
