Patrick has been involved in the entertainment business since the age of 16 when he first performed on stage as a musician with his ridiculously awesome metal band, Apocalypse. Soon after that he would discover his second passion in life while taking a video/film production course at Mission Viejo High School, California. It is there where he would achieve super video geek status, spending three to five hours a day shooting and editing short films.
While attending college to pursue degrees in psychology and philosophy, Patrick began to receive offers to produce and edit corporate videos and commercials for such clients as Kingston Technology, Gucci, Toshiba, and Yamaha. On the side, Patrick would feed his music habit, performing in bands and composing soundtracks for various short films and corporations such as Lexus and Toyota.
In 1996, Patrick landed a full-time position at E! Entertainment Television performing roles such as audio engineer, Chyron operator, and teleprompter on Emmy Award winning shows like Talk Soup and E! News. Four years later, he left E! to pursue work in documentaries full-time, beginning with a role as Second Unit Director on the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary We Served With Pride, which resulted in a meeting with President Clinton in the Oval Office.
Shortly after leaving E!, Patrick founded Transcendental Media, an independent film production company whose goal is to create films and documentaries to “agitate the sleep of mankind”. Patrick is currently developing a slate of projects that include a feature documentary on silence and a scripted feature tentatively titled Jonathan & Akiko.
