Paul Ransom

Paul Ransom was born in Brighton, England in 1965 and moved to Adelaide, Australia in 1972.

After growing up in outer suburbia he studied to be a teacher. Thereafter, he worked briefly in the disability sector, taught drama to kids and Maths & English to prisoners in a maximum security gaol, before switching to find work as a rock journo, film critic and magazine editor. He also did short stints as a nightclub DJ and band manager, in addition to writing PR blurbs and directing a film festival.

In the early 2000s Paul was a lecturer in the media/arts sector. However, after his marriage ended he absconded to the tropics, where he edited local publications for three years, before relocating to Melbourne to successfully complete a mid-life crisis and become an award winning independent filmmaker. To date, he has published literally hundreds of articles for various publications, made four arty rock videos, written reams of copy for countless clients and created a blog consisting entirely of love letters.

In 2019, his non-fiction work The Pointless Revolution! was published by Everytime Press.

Paul currently lives in a low rise 1930s apartment building in Melbourne, where he ‘plays’ two guitars, feeds birds on the back porch and contemplates the void. If prevailed upon, he would most likely describe himself as a durational performance event.
