Paul chased adventure wherever he could find it, from his wild ride as a hoodlum teen and his drug-and-alcohol fueled stint working in a strip club to hauling his way up to the elite echelons of the defense forces as an Army Paratrooper and then Navy Clearance Diver. But trouble hunted him down in the form of a brutal shark in February 2009. Paul lost two limbs, and his career as a daredevil Diver was flung into jeopardy.
