Patrick is an avid backpacker, cyclist, and kayaker who completed his professional degree in Architecture at Drexel University where he specialized in sustainability, transportation architecture, and the social study of science and technology. While at Drexel, he served as Vice President of Drexel Smart House, a student-led technology incubator for sustainable building technologies. In his role as Vice President, Patrick developed expertise in business operations, corporate strategy, STEM pedagogy, and scientific research.
In addition to his experience working as an architectural designer, Patrick completed a professional graduate degree in Urban Planning at Columbia University. At Columbia, his studies focused on housing, community development, and sustainable urbanism. In addition to these more traditional areas he also explored questions of path-dependency, rightsizing, cohousing, networks and design pedagogy.
For the last two years Patrick has worked with a team of Drexel University Students to develop a lightweight green roof weighing less than 10 lb/sf when fully saturated. The team secured a Phase 1 EPA P3 grant of $10,000 for proof of concept development and a Phase 2 EPA P3 grant of $75,000 for the development of a commercial product.
Patrick is currently closing out the summer as a Teaching Fellow for the Environment at Singularity University at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA.
