"Ginko Inc." seems to offer services spanning "Personal Therapy, Landscaping and Business Services" according to their website. Signs in people's yards in The Avenues and the Old West End state that they do "Organic Gardening" and I have seen Paul working on people's interlocking walkways and driveways.

In 2012, Paul seems to have taken on hair care as referenced at https://twitter.com/clubsizepaul and http://www.shirlz.com/peterborough/ginko-peterborough-c17761741.htm and his http://ginko.me/ website seems dead, but this Google pages are up, though perhaps out of date: https://sites.google.com/site/ginkopeterborough/ . The Yellow Pages website lists one "Ginko" in Peterborough: http://canada411.yellowpages.ca/search/?stype=si&showDD=true&what=ginko&where=Peterborough%2C+ON&x=20&y=18

2011-06-29 22:38:32   (updated 2017-11-05 after Paul asked me to remove speculation about his history) Paul seems to be a nice enough fellow, but we had difficulty with his work when we asked him to repair some unevenness on our interlock brick driveway. Communication was a challenge as he was often unable to answer direct questions or communicate his plans or the expected outcome of his labours. In the end his work was not what we wanted (the "repaired" section ended up being about 5 cm higher than the original section) and we will have to get someone else to come and fix his "fix". While we were unhappy with the outcome of the driveway, the challenge was that he was seemingly unable to understand our desires, unable to articulate what he could do to address our problem, unable to explain why things were done in particular ways, and unable to fix or even attempt to fix the work that he did. I am very suprised that the Paul Archer we interacted with would have been able to complete a BA in Communications from SFU as indicated on his website - our spoken and written communications have been anything but clear. He struggled with completing spoken full sentences, and some of his written messages read more like abstract poetry rather than utilitarian prose. I have seen other brickwork that he has done in the area (though not spoken to the owners) and at least some of the examples are reasonably well put together, but with the communication difficulties we have had, I would suggest that future possible clients be careful to insure that they and Paul both understand the scope of any work that they want done. —j-beda

2012-03-29 10:37:50   Ginko called me three times at 5:45 this morning. I had never heard of them before today. When I finally answered, they said they were looking for Kenny Wilkinson. When I said they had the wrong number and it was 5:45 in the morning, the person said "Well you just saved me the cost of calling 411" and hung up. Not someone I would ever do business with. —
