Paul Frederic Rowe was born in Nacogdoches, TX, in 1978 while his father was a graduate student at Stephen F. Austin State University and his mother was receptionist and bookkeeper at Smith-Mann Motors. A little over a year later the three of them moved to Memphis, TN, where Paul attended Memphis Public Schools through 7th grade. He then attended Memphis Junior Academy for a year and was homeschooled through the remainder of high school. By that point, the family (now including brother Tony and sister Jenny) had moved to southern Oregon.
Paul applied for admission to Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls and, although he was a product of homeschooling, was immediately accepted and offered a scholarship primarily because of his ACT score of 31 (top 1%). He graduated in 2000 with a major in Software Engineering Technology. After spending a few years working in the Portland, OR, area, he returned the Medford area and was employed by a software firm in Phoenix, OR. He sang baritone with the Rogue Valley Harmonizers Barbershop Harmony Society chorus and a quartet named "Musically Inclined."
In the summer of 2008, Paul got engaged to a resident of Albuquerque, NM, and in November 2008 he relocated to Albuquerque. No date has been set for the wedding.
