Paul Christiansen was born and raised in Canberra, Australia. He has lived in other Australian cities but keeps coming back to Canberra for some reason, probably because that's where his job is. He used to play bass guitar in a couple of bands and was learning the viola for a little while. Occasionally he mucks around on the guitar or baritone ukulele and ruminates on lost opportunities. He’s a potty-mouthed atheist who likes whisk(e)y and song. He is not dead yet.
