You found Paul Malan.

Well done. Now what?


My name is Paul Malan. I whistle more than most people, but apart from that I’m a pretty normal guy. I love music, I love words, and I love to think. I hold hands with my wife because she’s awesome. I goof off with our five kids because they’re fun.

I also love to write, so I decided to share one piece each month as a way of getting used to people reading me. A few of the resulting articles have attracted more attention than I expected, so I thought I’d resurrect this old domain to help people get a feel for me and my motivation.

For now, the easiest way to do that might be to follow me on one of the social media platforms at the bottom of the screen. You’ll also find links to my monthly articles.
