Prior to joining 100 Coaches Agency, he worked as a project manager in the energy industry, overseeing multi-million dollar portfolios of capital projects from conception to completion.

During these years he learned that, no matter the industry, people and their interactions drive the success or failure of an initiative. This realization instilled within him a passion for elevating companies and individuals by focusing on the people.
Patrick received his Master’s Degree in Engineering for Sustainable Development from the University of Cambridge. His thesis work delved into operationalizing corporate strategy through sustainability assessments. Through his case study research he saw that a company’s core values, disseminated by effective leadership, can yield more sustainable outcomes. Inspired to close the gap between good intentions and good results, Patrick is excited to work with a company dedicated to finding leadership solutions and creating connections.
He graduated summa cum laude with an honors degree in mechanical engineering and minor in political science from Oklahoma State University. His hobbies include playing the piano, gardening, and cycling, and he is eager to join in any conversation about Broadway theater, current events, or classic literature. Patrick is grateful to be working in a career that highly values mentorship, and he is thankful for the many mentors, both formal and informal, who have helped him thus far.
