Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Fine Arts, University of Michigan, 2012


Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Patrick has always had a passion for film and music. His early years were spent playing a variety of instruments, before finally settling on the French Horn. During High School, Patrick discovered his interest in the technical side of music by recording and producing songs for his friends. Instead of continuing with French Horn, Patrick applied - and was accepted - to the Performing Arts Technology program at the University of Michigan.

During his time at the University of Michigan, Patrick worked at the Digital Media Commons. At the DMC, he helped design and build two recording studios and the Video Studio audio setup. In March of 2012, he directed and produced Me3Mind & Audacity, Live at the Dude: a live concert complete with staging design, lighting, live mixed video art, and HD recording. This concert, along with two full length studio albums, served as Patrick's senior thesis in Performing Arts Technology.
