Paul Birch resides in central London, England. He graduated from University (Imperial College) many years ago - but now believes the University of Life has much more to offer than traditional education.
Paul's background is systems analysis. He has loved the Internet since the first day he went online back in 1996. He's been surfing the Internet ever since and has applied many surfing discoveries to BirthdayAlarm. He also enjoy's travelling and helps run Adventura Singles Holidays.
Paul has fun everyday, by helping bring a little extra joy to people's lives through the Birthday Alarm service. Formerly himself a 'bad boy' at remembering birthdays - he is of course now excellent!
