In addition to being a union member of Actor’s Equity, Paul is also a member of the IATSE Local Hair & Makeup Union. He has worked as a theatrical makeup artist throughout much of his 35 years in professional theater.  Since 2002, he has been a makeup artist at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for L.A. Opera.
