Patrick lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He takes pride in high-quality code, solving complex problems with simple solutions, and helping others. He is a frequent public speaker and writer on web development, and is also a co-organizer of Refresh Pittsburgh.

He’s been writing code - in one form or another - since 1997. Mostly HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, but also Ruby on Rails, PHP, and a sprinkling of C# along the way. He’s been fortunate to have collaborated with teams from The Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Wombat Security Technologies, UPMC, The American Economic Association, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and ACCO Brands (Mead, FiveStar, Trapper Keeper, AT-A-GLANCE).

Currently, he is happily employed at Sparkbox.
