Patrick is a designer.

Growth as a designer is a lifelong journey for Patrick. As a youth, he embraced a love of drawing, handcrafting, process improving, and working with computers. This complemented his ambivert-thinker personality and joy of making things.

As a young adult, Patrick studied various problem-solving disciplines and ultimately earned two design degrees, a BFA in Graphic Design (1996) and MEd in Educational Technology a.k.a. Instructional Design (2004). When the Web grew in the 1990s-2000s, his childhood interests evolved into a multi-discipline design passion.

  • Humility
  • Empathy
  • Artistry
  • Responsiveness
  • Technical skills

Patrick knows that good design comes from understanding problems and people. His design process entails defining problems, learning about the audience, and iterating to find user-centric solutions.
