A Wilmington native, Patrick has a passion for the guitar that began as a teenager when he borrowed his dad’s copy of Led Zeppelin IV.

Patrick expanded his musical talents by learning to play bass, ukulele, and mandolin as well. He attended University of North Carolina Wilmington, where he earned a B.A. in English with teacher licensure. Throughout his years of experience, Patrick has been a part of many bands and music projects in a variety of genres, including blues/jazz rock, metal, Christian rock, and alternative rock. Currently, his focus is on his solo folk singer-songwriter project, which has been chosen for music festivals and featured on local radio stations several times.
