Paul Kwinn is just a guy with a guitar and a reasonably solid sense of the Silly. He has managed, over the years, to pull his voice up to "sometimes passable". In his secret identity, he has spent 32 years as a software engineer, 90% of that in the videogame industry. (It's not "intrepid reporter for the Daily Planet", but it pays the bills.) He stumbled into fandom in the late 80s, and filk a couple years later. 25+ years of filk has provided him with great friends, great times, some song-writing contest prizes, and one greatly-appreciated Pegasus award. Foremost among the friends are his partners in the band Puzzlebox: Taunya Gren, Alisa Garcia, Luis Tomas Garcia, and Beckett Gladney (the last of whom doubles as his spouse, and triples as a well-known artist, creating album covers, among other works). They've had guest gigs at such luxurious events as GaFilk, FilkContinental, Consonance, and, most recently, the UK filk con. The group put out one CD, "Assembly Required", and are now working on another (only 20 years later). Mr. Kwinn resides happily in Fremont, CA, with his wife and 16-year-old twins Casey & Riley. He wishes to thank everyone for the Pegasus nomination, and point out that, in some cultures, vote-purchasing is perfectly respectable.
