Paul Mount grew up in New Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia. He lived for almost a quarter-century in State College, PA, before moving to his beloved Folly Beach, SC.
He is a runner and a biker, and has completed a couple of marathons and triathlons. He is also something of a geek, but in the jack-of-all-trades sense, rather than a specific geek genre.
He is sweet and charming, usually witty, and presents a lively feast for sand fleas and mosquitoes alike. He is a nice guy, and so according to rule generally finishes last.
