Born in 1966, Paul Bishop was raised and educated in Wynnum until age 15.
His many childhood adventures on pushbike, sailboat and surf-craft in Moreton Bay, Stradbroke Island and SEQ taught him much about the connection between people and place.
Paul has been an actor for community change toward health, wealth and wellbeing since graduating from Brisbane State High in 1984, then QUT with an Associate Diploma in the Arts (Theatre).
He has spent 25 years working with Australia's major theatre companies, in many films and television roles, earning several awards, including nominations for his role as Sgt. Ben Stewart on 'Blue Heelers'.
A resident of Birkdale since 2004, Paul is a father to four children, and has been happily married for over 20 years. Paul has earned a living as an employee, contractor, mentor, entrepreneur, investor, and community enabler.
His recent work includes presenting, performing, social media production, design-thinking and group facilitation. This work has highlighted the importance of common-sense approaches to supporting community resilience and preparation for changing times.
Paul is immensely proud of the opportunity to work with local residents on bringing the democratic vision of the Redlands 2030 Community Plan to life.
'By making the most of the present, while honouring our past I am sure we can work towards a vibrant future for the most diverse and beautiful city in Australia. I wish you well on this, our shared journey,' says Paul.
