In 1990, he returned to Malaysia and formed a production company, Axis Films. He has since directed many prominent and award winning commercials. Axis Films invariably swept the local TV production awards and has become pre-eminent among production companies in Asia. Paul has produced work for The USA, Egypt, Dubai, Lebanon, Pakistan and most Asian countries.

He has established himself as one of the most recognised advertising people in the South East Asian region. He often writes for the local and regional advertising journals. Paul is married to a Malaysian and has one son studying in England.
