Since the day in 2001 when he delivered a fridge to Sydney’s Nova969 resulting in him landing his first job in the entertainment industry, Paul has established himself as a professional radio presenter, TV host, voice artist, stand-up comedian, MC, auctioneer and musician.
After climbing the ranks of radio station promotions, Paul became an on-air presenter under the nickname “Fridgy”. Eight years later and he had presented every radio shift across the day (including being the regular breakfast fill-in) on three different Nova Network stations in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth, as well as Austereo’s 2DayFM and Triple M.
In addition to this Paul hosted national radio shows including the Nova produced P-Plate Debate and Austereo’s famous Hot30 Countdown.
Paul began his stand-up comedy career in 2007 which over the next 7 years, saw him perform all around Australia and support some of Australia’s biggest comedy acts, including Tom Gleeson, Greg Fleet, Julia Morris and Ahn Do.
During this time he performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Cracker Comedy Festival. In 2010 he performed his first live TV comedy spot on Network Ten’s ‘Thursday Night Live’.
Whilst slogging it out in the comedy clubs by night, he began to pursue his career as a voice-artist. Paul has been a regular promo voice for three major TV networks (Channel 10, Nine Network and ABC) and has voiced TV and radio campaigns, corporate videos and animated productions for some of the biggest brands and advertisers in the country (including Subway, Coca-Cola, Hungry Jacks, Sony, Optus, Volkswagen and many more).
As an accomplished musician, he played in an original rock band for years on the Sydney and east coast circuit, appearing with the likes of Grinspoon and Lo-tel.
In addition to presenting in corporate videos and television commercials, Paul is an accomplished Master Of Ceremonies and hosts dozens of corporate events, festivals and functions throughout the year including the Sydney Local Business Awards, Fairfax Media and Virgin Mobile.
Paul joined the Nine Network as a presenter on the then ‘Mornings with Kerri-Anne’ show, (now ‘Today Extra’) and has hosted live studio and location advertorials since 2010.
Paul coupled his love for real-estate to become a fully accredited auctioneer and has called hundreds of auctions around Sydney for various agencies.
As of 2019, Paul was invited to become an exclusive auctioneer for McGrath, one of Australia’s most well-known brands, and every week calls auctions for some of the best real-estate agents in Sydney.

There are a million voices out there but there’s only one Paul. If you’re tossing up between him and someone else – go with Paul, he’ll give you more. Simple as that.
Paul is very accommodating with our management and technical team. His contribution makes each of our twenty Business Awards a huge success.
I cannot speak highly enough of him and would be very happy to talk to anyone who is considering working with him and wants to know what they’re in for!
Paul’s sense of humour has always made working with him enjoyable, both in the studio and outside, and the fact that he can nail a four minute advertorial to the second has the clients asking for Paul again, and makes my life a lot easier.
I’ve always found him entertaining and a delight to work with and will continue to work with him at any given opportunity.
Paul excels in everything he turns his attention to – from on air announcing, presenting, voice over, event MC and comedy performer. Paul is, without doubt, one of the industry’s best young talents.
He understands promos and is skilled at adjusting to varying pace requirements, doing cold reads or fitting in to existing cuts. He also shows a good sense of comedy and comic timing. He takes direction well, he’s easygoing and a pleasure to work with.
Paul has a great ability to adapt to situations and still communicate the message making him the preferred talent for many advertorial presentations.
I know that when I am working on-screen with Paul, we are guaranteed a great response and a good laugh! With his warmth, Paul is the ideal candidate to host a variety of shows that require “live” on-your-feet, quick-witted entertainment.
Oh, yeah, and he’s also a fabulous choice when you want a nice, flexible and funny guy (who knows way too much about tennis).
