Hi I'm Paul Pinkerton, I was born in Chicago, Illinois. A hallmark city for blues and jazz. As a hobby, I like to work on cars and write stories based on my photography. On my leisure time, I occasionally like to sip on bourbon or scotch and smoke cigars when I'm socializing. As a job, I'm a professional photographer that works for a company based in New York City, United States. I grew up in a wealthy family that started a private investigation firm founded by Allan Pinkerton my great great grandfather in 1850. My grandfather was William Pinkerton, son of Allan and my mother's name is Isabel Pinkerton (William's daughter). Since my mother was married, my last name at birth was originally Watkins but I changed it to Pinkerton due to not getting along with my father. I was always more close to my mother's side of the family anyway growing up.
I went to Notre Dame College minored in photography and majored in business when I was 18 years old. After I graduated college, I joined the U.S Army and graduated as an officer in intelligence when I was 23. Then eventually I was honorably discharged for 4 years of service. I started to relax and work as a photographer for a magazine company. On the side, I started my own business as a private investigator when I was 27. At 29 years old, the magazine company I worked for wanted me to get photos and information about the zombie outbreak in Chernarus. I paid for a flight to take me out to Chernarus and ever since I got there I've been trying to survive.
