About Patrick

I’m a former copywriter who’s thrilled to be writing precisely what I want to write without the bother of kick-off meetings, brainstorming sessions, client presentations, good and bad revisions. Repeat.

I’m also honored to be heading up the social media efforts and marketing of my county’s resistance to commercial cannabis. Not simply cannabis, mind you—we’re okay with recreational and medical cannabis use in California. We’re only against commercial cannabis.

I graduated from the University of North Texas, where I hooped my way to a master’s degree in journalism with an advertising concentration and a radio/TV/film minor. My undergrad is in English, of course, with a photography minor.

Most meaningful position

Though my most fulfilling vocation is as a writer, I find the most joy as a Christian.

What I most want to hear when this life is done is God’s voice saying to me, “Well done, my son.” In the meantime, I struggle with my flesh, and remember that God loves me and has adopted me into his family, and wants me to glorify him by loving and serving others instead of myself. I’m trying to love others unconditionally, show more humility and the love of Christ through the ability he gives me to do what I cannot do in my own strength.
