Born in Louisiana and raised in Texas, Patrick did what only a child of his impeccable and profound introvertedness could do. Seek out others to give him interesting things to say. A shy boy who found he could become other people by stepping onto a stage with the words of a playwright securely fastened in his head during his youth, Patrick determined this was to be his destiny. However, after graduating college with a degree in Criminal Justice and minor fields of study in Psychology and Theatre, he went to work for Children's Protective Services, investigating physical and sexual abuse. After later relocating to the NW, he again focused on acting, with a specialty in film before deciding to produce, write, and direct his own stories. Additionally, Patrick works in medical simulation as faculty at a university. He's also a huge animal lover and long time vegetarian.
