Paul is responsible for the ongoing care and management of over 1 million museum, library and archive items held by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, one of the key activities described in our Act of Parliament. The collection underpins much of the work the Trust does to share Shakespeare with the world – being the basis for research projects, digital activity, formal and informal education, talks and tours, interpretation in the houses, loans and exhibitions.

He joined the Trust in 2012 as Collections Manager having spent eight years at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry, working on a range of collections information and digital access projects. During his time in Coventry he also served for three years as Employee Trustee on the governing board of the organisation. Prior to that he worked for the Boat Museum (now National Waterways Museum) in Ellesmere Port on a variety of collections management projects.

Paul studied History at the University of York before going on to complete a MA in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester in 2000.
