"I've worked with Paul in the past and have another upcoming movie where he will also be part of as both actor and Police/ ICE Consultant and I can say that he is an amazing actor who is very experienced in the real world of police and detective work. I highly recommend his Police Academy for Actors Workshop to anyone interested in polishing their acting craft or just interested in taking it to a higher level! I also recommend it for movie Directors as well, especially for those who may want to create and direct realistic S.W.A.T. or Police Scenes." - Norton Rodriguez, Director

“Paul really knows his stuff! A true professional.” – Ron Lowther, Producer
“I can say that it's true Paul is the best when it comes to action scenes and all related to guns, he coached me for a short film sequence, I was playing a CIA agent. Go Paul!” - Glenda Galeano, Actress
“Paul was a great asset at Broward Sheriff's Office. He knew his job inside and out and was quick to explain the workings of law enforcement to me for my job, and for research I needed in writing projects. Paul has the morality and sensitivity in a tough job to do what needs to be done and treats everyone around him as he would like to be treated. He would be an asset to any law enforcement team, to television and film directors for technical advice, or to any company who is looking for that knowledge from someone who has been there.” – Christine Kerrick, Graphic Designer
"The class was fantastic, and we learned a lot, Paul hosts these classes occasionally and if you write about any kind of crime, you really should take this class. Thanks, Paul.” – Judy Weber, Author
“Paul, we had the very best time, learning the ins and outs of the various law enforcement jobs. All of us who attended yesterday have stories and characters that will be FAR better for having spent our time in your workshop. By far the best investment I've made in my writing in a good while.” -
Nancy Quatrano, Author
