A Connecticut native and horror junkie, Patrick spent much of his childhood amongst the VHS tapes that lined the horror section at his local video store. Inspired and captivated by cinema and the written word, he attended Emerson College and shortly thereafter began his career in Los Angeles, CA as an insatiable creative assistant and script reader for Marc Platt Productions where he mined and elevated captivating stories from page to the screen. His over 15 years of coast to coast industry experience as a writer, producer, and creative, shines through in his ambitious, original screenplays that fuse old-school film nostalgia with new-school technique and execution. His latest feature, Soul Passage, has been recognized by over 20 internationally renowned contests and festivals including Screencraft Horror, The Austin Film Festival (Top 20%), the Creative World Awards, and Fade In.
