Webster–St. Louis

Paul and Angela both graduated in 2000 from the School of Communications in St. Louis. Paul graduated with a BA in Film Production and Angie a BA in Media Communications.

Angie and Paul first met in the Maria hall dorm in the fall of 1996. It was really just in passing, as they were both just starting their first semester at Webster. Paul and Angie didn't really get to know each other until a year and a half later when they had Chris Benson's Film Production 1 class. It was a small and pretty tight-knit group. As a matter of fact, they still keep in touch with a few people that were in that class with them. Angie and Paul became good friends as they enjoyed working on film projects together.

Paul and AngieAngie was raised on a steady diet of classic movies, and Paul found it fascinating to talk with her about them. After spending all that time in classes they loved, at film and video shoots, and in the editing rooms together, it didn't take them much longer to realize that they wanted to be more than just good friends.

Angie and Paul have been together for 14 years now, and were married in May of 2011. They live in Los Angeles where Paul is a Television and Film Editor and Angie works as a Writer/Producer.
