Patrick has a passion and unorthodox approach to solving puzzles and detecting patterns; he rises to the challenge while ultimately, discovering solutions.
Patrick is proud when he sees the projects with which he is involved come to completion – from a vacant parcel of land to a building. Patrick explains that his passion for these projects within his community connects him to his past and present life – coming full circle – which is his ultimate reward for what he does. Integrating his work and personal life, Patrick often bikes through the neighborhoods where the communities for which he has assisted with financing are located.
Patrick is a native of Gaithersburg, Maryland, and he enjoys living in Washington, D.C. – though he admits he is not much for politics!
