Paul studied Entertainment and Arts Management at Drexel and spent years working in event marketing and concert promotions in Philadelphia. He was first introduced to Digital Marketing when he was assigned to work on email marketing campaigns at RCA/Jive Records in New York in 2011. It was there that he first found his passion for creative marketing with an outside-of-the-box approach to helping musicians gain exposure. He has spent the past 6 years managing social media accounts for businesses large and small while also building websites that are both design and functionality driven.
When he’s not working, Paul plays bass in Indie Rock band Cheerleader and wanders around town in search for the perfect cup of coffee.
We are not currently hiring at Grue & Bleen, but we're always on the lookout for great freelancers and interns. Feel free to leave your information with us so we can keep you on file, and please stay in touch!
We’ve known each other a long time - most growing up in the same town, and some of us, even in the same bedroom! We’ve shared a lot of experiences together over the years, and we’re always looking to create more with all sorts of cool people.
With us, Grue & Bleen isn’t just about business. It’s actually very personal. Sure, doing well is important and is the end goal, but having fun along that journey is something we refuse to do without. We find it makes success easier, so our thoughts can be summed up by asking “why not do both?”
We’re so glad you asked! Part of what makes us tick is getting to know awesome people, with their awesome ideas, and the awesome businesses they run so we can help share them with the world. By taking advantage of the fact that we have two halves of our brains, we fuse creativity with strategy to make our friends (that’s you, ahem) stand out with an outside-the-box approach. Plus, we’ll have some good laughs together while we do it.
Why be boring and do what everyone else does when you can be different and stand out? Great companies aren’t built by following the herd, and we know you ain’t no herd-follower… let’s make some magic together!

Our name is weird, we know, but there’s definitely a story and a purpose behind it. We found it by searching for made up concepts to go along with our thoughts on being creative and different. When looking at colors we found “grue”, so we read on to learn that it was part of a philosophical theory that perfectly described our thoughts on being ahead of the curve.
In short, the Grue & Bleen Theory is about potential for change that defies expectation, arguing that nothing should be assumed based on past experiences because they are not real definitions. Using a colorful example, we only assume leaves we see today will look green because they were green yesterday (the expectation). That leaf-green today could look water-blue tomorrow though (the change), so it really must have been “grue,” the literal word mix mashup and metaphorical representation of the change, the whole time (the potential). In short(er): embrace the potential for change.
That’s us in a nutshell: we look at things differently to get ahead of the game, with a funky style that makes you say "COOL!"

The world isn't all green leaves and blue water droplets though, and the colors grue and bleen don't even begin to scratch the surface of all the potential for change in this world.
As with these colors though, you may not actively consider that change is possible in other areas. In fact, the same is true for your own brand, marketing, and business. That's why we're here.
Let us help turn your blues into greens.
