Dominican Ecological Energy Company
Chief Executive Officer

Originally from Natchez, Mississippi, Paul practiced law for thirty-one years, in which he principally focused on commercial litigation, not only in Mississippi, but across the United States. After graduation with honors from his undergraduate university and law school, he served as a judicial clerk to both federal and state judges at the commencement of his practice, and he then used those experiences in representing clients through the arduous avenues of the American court systems. In doing so, he built and assisted business clients in developing their ventures and navigating the statutes, rules and regulations governing their interests and projects. Having semi-retired from the active practice of law, Paul moved to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, over four years ago, and he has since worked with others in their ventures in property and business development.

Inspired by his lifelong love of the sea and the environment, Paul initially began work on the development of a biofuel energy plant in the Dominican Republic in 2021. His interests in the endeavor peaked due to many factors but principally based upon the enhanced Dominican governmental openness and investment encouragement of such industrial developments and the needs of the Dominican Republic to meet its energy needs and its desire to exhibit to all other Latin American countries the necessary commitment to combating climate change effects. Over an evolving process, Paul has established a team in both the United States and in the Dominican Republic to bring a state-of-the-art biofuel project to fruition. Recognizing the adverse environmental impact of climate change on this Caribbean paradise inspired and compelled Paul to relentlessly pursue the collection of all necessary staff, experts, data and financial support in order to develop the conversion of various feedstocks (including sargassum seaweed, sugarcane waste (bagasse), landfill and municipal solid waste (MSW) and plastics) into renewable energy products.

Dominican representatives, professionals, and citizens in all walks of life have repeatedly exalted Paul’s inspiring commitment to this endeavor as “Visionary.”
