Part of the impact and continuing popularity of the award-winning “The Journey” film that Patrick executive produced is in its lessons to be more daring and conscious in our choices. Patrick’s own life, weaving through politics, business consulting, independent film and new media, is a testament to the “unscripted life”.
Patrick’s diverse life choices and experiences have made him a sought after speaker, workshop presenter, and coach. He has been invited to speak at colleges and corporations on a variety of topics, including film and new media, entrepreneurship, political engagement, diversity and Christian faith. His infectious enthusiasm for life and his willingness to be transparent about both his successes and failures in life has led to feature appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Café Central and Turner Broadcasting’s Atlanta Interactive.
Patrick received his MBA from Duke University and his BA in Economics and minor in Political Science from Miami University where he was President of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.
