Patrick attended Presbyterian College, located in Clinton, South Carolina where he originally majored in Computer Science, but found that the Visual Arts held his passion. Patrick combined both disciplines by concentrating in 3D computer animation. As a result, he received a minor in computer science and a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Visual Arts in the spring of 2007. He graduated in May 2012 from Clemson Universities’ Digital Production Arts program earning a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts. During his time at Clemson, he filled many lead positions in production environments for both Pre-Rendered and Real Time projects.

Since graduation, Patrick has worked as a lead artist for Digital Roar Studios (since defunct).

During this time, Patrick also taught as an adjunct professor at Western Piedmont Community College in Morganton, NC.

Currently, Patrick is the Simulation Designer and Lead Artist for IVC Greenville located in Greenville, SC. IVC works in both creating virtual simulations for various industries, and providing a high tech office space for clients to view, discuss, and utilize said simulations.
