Thanks for stopping by! My name is Paul and at HubPages, I write about all sorts of things that interest me. My home is Kansas (The Sunflower State) and I've lived here since 1994. I grew up in Independence, Missouri and lived in St. Charles, Missouri and Perry, Iowa for a short time. In 2000, I served in the National Civilian Community Corps (a division of Americorps) at Perry Point, Maryland and did quite a bit of travelling throughout the northeastern part of the United States. I love travelling and site-seeing and hope to travel outside of the U.S. someday! Some of my other passions include photography, playing guitar, and entrepreneurship.
