Personal Insight

Patrick has a creative flair that he enjoys honing in his outside activities such as sculpture, painting and music. Recently that creativity has been turned toward exploring acting, with roles in community theater, film and television. While larger productions have included smaller roles, in short films he has larger or lead roles. In local theater he has most recently been a lead in a short play. Taking classes in acting and improv comedy has inspired future creative plans of forming a new improv comedy performance troupe with fellow improv class members.
