Paul Norman


Born and raised in Bronx, NY to a Puerto Rican mom and an African American dad, Paul was instilled with values of diversity appreciation, education and self-reliance from an early age. Paul accelerated in his studies, graduating from high school at the age of sixteen then obtaining a degree in Visual & Media Arts from Emerson College.

Paul moved from New York to Los Angeles to embark on a successful career as a First Assistant Director. His first wife gave birth to a healthy daughter, Honour, who he loves more than life itself.

After his second child, Kyle, was diagnosed with a rare, incurable genetic disorder, Paul refused to accept that his son would not survive. He fought battle after battle, advocating for Kyle's care, seeking medical expertise wherever it could be found, committing himself to Kyle's recovery.

Paul conceived the idea for a SuperCaptainBraveMan book upon being inspired by Kyle's nurse, Victor, who would often sketch pictures of Kyle as a happy, healthy, active boy. Truly, that was how those close to Kyle often envisioned him.

In his spare time, Paul enjoys golfing, fitness, watching sports and drinking red wine.
