Patrick was raised in Chicago as the oldest of four, and attended Miami University of Ohio, where he competed on the Cross Country and Track teams before moving out to Denver. With a degree in Mathematics & Statistics and previous work experience, he enjoys extracting meaning from big piles of data. Patrick loves many sports, competitions, and outdoors activities, but his most time-consuming and favorite hobby is cycling—from biking around Lake Michigan, to riding up and down the mountains, to watching the Tour de France—he cannot get enough of it! He also enjoys and spends a large amount of time reading all sorts of books, especially history and biographies—there’s a good chance he’s the biggest Lord of the Rings fan you will ever meet. He is excited to be in a position at Lourdes where he can support the parish community, as well as learn and grow in his Catholic faith.
