Patrick helped the nonprofit, LearnToLive, develop financial projections and a slide deck, which were presented to a philanthropic foundation with the objective of securing funds to build their very own learning center in Indonesia. Together, Lee and Patrick hope to assist in building the learning center sometime in 2023.

Patrick grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, before moving to New Orleans for school in 2013. Outside of the office, Patrick enjoys New Orleans’ many festivals, restaurants, volunteer opportunities and sporting events. Patrick is a hiking enthusiast and loves exploring national parks (Utah and Arizona parks are his personal favorites) and watching college or professional football (Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns).

Q&A: Personally speaking

  • Q. If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have?
    I’d be a marine biologist. I enjoy being around water, and there’s so much about the ocean that is yet to be explored.
  • Q. What’s the one thing that might surprise others about you?
    I tried to teach myself how to play the saxophone during the pandemic. I still have a lot of practicing to do.
  • Q. How do you define success?
    Being happy with what you do, who you do it with and the people you meet along the way
