A digital strategist by day and a pizza chef wannabe by night – when he isn’t working or tackling a dirty diaper, Pat enjoys playing piano, posting the beauty of life’s ordinary moments to Instagram, maintaining his beard, silly dances with his daughters and running a Catholic blog with his wife.
About the site:
The purpose of this site is to share my insight into creativity, digital marketing and how these strategies can be applied for evangelization. My hope is that over time the site becomes a dynamic collection of ideas that inspire you and provides you real value. As of late, most of my writing lives on Medium.
About Pat’s music:
Pat was first introduced to music when he joined the school choir in 5th grade. While in high school he developed a greater love for music by acting and singing in on-stage musicals. In addition to learning music at school, Patrick furthered his passion by taking 6 years of percussion lessons.
After quickly picking up piano between his freshman and sophomore year of high school, he started composing instrumental pieces. Patrick’s first CD, Embodiment, was published in September of 2004. Embodiment is a collection of piano solos written over a two-year period and is an essential CD for anyone who loves new age music. Since its release, many critics have classified Pat’s melodies as comforting, soothing and inspiring. You can listen to his music here>>
