He is the son of Sandy and Cecily, and has a twin brother, Morgan, who was also on the 2000 Olympic Team and is a member of the U.S. Senior National Team. The brothers made history as they became the first twins ever to compete in the same Olympic Games gymnastics competition. Older sister Betsy (23) recently finished her collegiate gymnastics career at Iowa State University. Their father was an All-American diver. Paul is currently taking classes at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee and is interested in pursuing a career in physical therapy. He enjoys playing tennis in his spare time.
