'It all started when I began producing handmade, recycled, and ecologically sound, vegan products from raw materials that I came across while traveling, such as sail fabrics, parachutes, climbing ropes, sunshades and various upholstery fabrics. Over time it became a passion, and with innumerable combinations, possibilities and new challenges, Flyrooster was born.'

Climber, Adventurer and Author
Paul was a cutting-edge rock climber and mountaineer hailing from the UK. He won the Boardman/Tasker Award for mountain literature in 1997, with his book Deep Play.
On Friday the 13th of February 1998 in Tasmania, climbing a slender sea stack known as The Totem Pole, a TV-sized boulder falling from 25 meters inflicted such terrible head injuries to Paul that doctors thought he might never walk or even speak again.
Paul has spent his time since the accident in contemplation of the hemiplegia which has robbed his right side of movement and continues to play tricks with his speech and memory. He sees the accident as a precious gift and describes it as the best thing that has ever happened to him. Being in hospital for a year gave Paul the impetus to write his second book: The Totem Pole in 2000.
Nominated for the Banff Prize, The Longest Climb followed in 2005.
He has continued to lead a challenging life, climbing, caving, kayaking, rafting and, in 2009, lead rock climbing again.
Paul rode a recumbent trike through Tibet to Mount Everest and, in 2016 he finally climbed the Totem Pole, 18 years after his accident. His latest journey was the 2152 km World Expeditions Lowest to Highest Expedition.
Those lessons learned in the mountains got him through a harrowing injury, and engendered a life lived in the moment.
'I use them still, repeatedly, each day of my second, radically different life.'
