Patrick received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and his Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2006 from UNC Chapel Hill. After college, Patrick began trying out different types of sports and fitness classes, to include Jiu Jitsu, TRX, kettlebells and long distance running (completing 2 half marathons).

In 2012, Patrick and his wife (fellow coach Lauren) dropped into a local CrossFit. Having never been an athlete growing up, CrossFit was a brand new challenge and experience. Over the years, CrossFit has kept Patrick coming back time and time again. As he sees it, it’s the first type of working out that he has ever truly enjoyed.
As a coach, Patrick enjoys helping each athlete attain their fitness goals. As an athlete, he especially enjoys olympic lifting and not running.

When not at the gym, Patrick is a software architect at a local firm and is a self-proclaimed professional Netflix watcher.
