Born and raised in Oregon, Patrick enjoys a rewarding life on the hillside of Dundee with his wife and daughter. Having graduated from the University of Oregon in 2003, Patrick began his career as a financial analyst. After numerous months of sitting behind a computer screen, he decided there was more to life and set out on a new path to discover the world. A decade hence, Patrick had accumulated a wealth of life experiences from places such as Las Vegas, Guam, and Indonesia. You may now find him floating down a nearby river on his pontoon, fishing rod in hand and beer in the cooler.
