Patrick was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. He attended Brophy until Junior year then moved to Montana and graduated from Flathead High School. After High School he moved to Flagstaff, Cincinnati and then back to Phoenix. He is #6 in a family of 8 kids! He is married to Jamie (Who he met teaching at Hubbard) and they now have a son, Calvin who is 17 months old. He worked at Hubbard from 2002-2009 as an instructor, deck supervisor and rec team coach. After a long hiatus of moving around and trying different jobs (woodworking, landscaping, outdoor retail) he has found his way back to Hubbard! He will be swim instructing and deck supervisor at all locations.
Towards the end of his high school career he was introduced to the world of the outdoors. He went on his first backpacking trip (21 days in the Bob Marshall wilderness) and spent a lot of time snowboarding and fly fishing in the mountains of Montana. These days his hobbies revolve mostly around being a dad. He loves to spend time with his siblings and nieces and nephews and watching all the cousins play together. His future goals include becoming a fixture at Hubbard and being a positive and loving pillar in his family’s life. “ I spent 7 years moving around the country and trying different jobs but could not find a place that gave me as much satisfaction as Hubbard. Being able to pass a comfort and love for water on to children makes coming to work everyday exciting!”
