Paul Jackmauh

About the author: Paul Jackmauh Paul Jackmauh was born and raised in Boston. He spent his boyhood summers riding the T, armed with a digital camera and a Discman, exploring Boston’s assorted cultures. Paul attended Buckingham, Browne and Nichols School in Cambridge, MA, where he first honed his skills as a writer. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Commonwealth Honors College at UMass Amherst a few years later with a B.A. in English. Paul remained in the Pioneer Valley after college, joining a lively local economy of independent businesses, artisans and artists. He has worked in the worlds of craft coffee and beer and loves them both. Paul never lost his passion for creative writing either, organizing many poetry readings and storytelling events along the way. In 2013 Paul led a creative writing class at North Star Self-Directed Learning Center for Teens. The same year Paul won a business pitch competition at the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst. Since then he has been exploring various exciting business opportunities. In 2015 he returned to Boston. Paul is passionate about writing, music, travel, entrepreneurship, craft beer and coffee, farm-to-table culture, and helping the human race evolve in every way possible. He is terminally verbose. He is excited to be working at Craft & Caro, a company that appreciates authentic, built-to-last craftsmanship and ethical production as much as it does luxury and style.
