Patrick is from Phoenix, AZ and he used to work in sales and one day decided he wanted to go on an adventure. He discovered Sage and became a raft guide and then a snowmobile guide and he’s never looking back. He actually has a degree in design with a focus on filmmaking so if you would like to argue about the best director of modern cinema; it’s Martin Scorsese.
