Hi! I'm Patrick.


I'm a video professional in the Washington, DC area with over six years of experience working in broadcast television and digital media production. My mission is to use storytelling to create positive change in the world.


I'd love to discuss how I can help you make an impact and achieve your goals.


Over six years ago, I fell somewhat haphazardly into the world of documentary filmmaking. As a wide-eyed graduate of Georgetown University, with a degree in International Relations, I happened upon an internship at a small production company in Maryland. With virtually no experience, I quickly took to Final Cut Pro and soon found myself managing post production for a long-running PBS series.

After five years at the company, I decided to go back to school to pursue a Master’s degree in Communications from George Washington University. During my time at GW, I have developed a strong understanding of communication strategies, messaging and storytelling. My goal now is to use digital media to make a positive impact on the world.

Originally from McLean, Virginia, I continue to live in the DC area with my black lab, Boone. I love Sushi, The Beatles, and road tripping across the U.S, and Boone loves eating, napping, and destroying any and all plush toys.
