An aesthete by nature, Paul-David spends as much time as possible focusing on the beautiful things in life. He began his relationship with fine cigars in the late 1990s with the Davidoff Classic No. 1 and No. 2 vitolas, and continues to pursue the gentle and fine art of smoking as one way to spend time beautifully. His other interests include cooking, wine, whiskey, classical music (as an ardent listener and classical pianist), art and architecture (especially of the Gilded Age), antique books and crystal, history and archaeology, genealogy, poetry, and self-improvement in all of its forms.
