Paul has been exploring and mapping caves in remote parts of Australia for over 15 years. At OZTek2002 Paul was awarded the coveted Australasian Technical Diver of the Year (2002) in recognition of his achievements in cave diving exploration.
Since 2002, Paul has continued to discover, explore and map dozens of new caves as well as tens of kilometres of virgin cave diving passages around Australia.
