Paul de Gelder faced his worst fear when he was attacked by a massive bull shark whilst conducting a counter terrorism exercise with the Australian Navy. Since that fateful day in 2009 when he lost two limbs, Paul has hosted over 25 documentaries as a Shark Week regular on Discovery Channel, and has helped some of the biggest names in the world, such as Will Smith, and Ronda Rousey, to overcome their own fears of sharks. Paul has authored 4 books and has even overcome his other fear of public speaking, becoming one of the top 10 speakers in Australia. Now based out of California, Paul is continuing his passion of sharing his story on stages across the United States and the world. A story of wild beginnings and adversity, to ultimate triumph in the face of overwhelming odds. Paul's performance is for anyone that seeks to enhance their own lives in every possible way.
