Paul Naughton came to the Space City in 2014 by way of LA, London, Oakland, and Columbus. In Houston he has found a place in the sun, comforted by the familiarity of the heat, traffic, sprawl, and rich ethnic diversity, all of which he grew up with in Southern California. 

As associate art director at Houstonia since November 2014, he illustrates, styles and designs pages—and seeks out talented contributors—in his quest to create a publication worthy of our fair city. As a designer, he has worked with brands like Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, and Hyundai, and his work has been featured in Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and South China Morning Post. As a human, he loves African food, urban planning, experimental music, and, most of all, tacos.
