Hi! I’m Paul and live in Eagan, Minnesota. Eagan has a population of about 67,000 people and is located a few miles south of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. I work in finance for the mailing and shipping industry. I attended the 2016 National Postal Forum in Nashville, Tennessee where I first learned about Postcrossing and I thought I’d give it a try. What an interesting way to connect with people around the world.
When I’m not at work, I can often be found running around the beautiful lakes, rivers, and parkways in the Twin Cities. I’ve run 9 full marathons, and several half-marathons. I’ve completed nearly 100 organized races and find runners some of the most interesting and compassionate people in the world. I enjoy hearing their stories.
I also like writing and I’m always reading a book. Tell me what you are reading! I still believe in the emotional power of hand-written correspondence, which piqued my interest in Postcrossing.
My partner, Pete, and I have shared 10-years of our lives (so far) and we enjoy cooking, dinner parties, theatre, music, hiking, biking, and travel. We’re generally up for a new adventure.
I’ve traveled extensively in the United States (only 8 states I’ve yet to visit). I’ve also traveled to Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, England, Germany, Greece, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Switzerland, Indonesia, Barbados, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
I’m happy to hear about your lifestyle and enjoy postcards depicting all the beautiful cities and locations in the world. Looking forward to hearing from you!
