About Me

Hi, I’m Pat. But my family calls me Patch. It’s a long story with many people claiming to know the origin of the nickname, but the details are lost with time.

I’m a product designer and a recent graduate from Stanford’s masters program in design. It was an amazing two year deep dive in design thinking methodology where I learned from some of the best designers in the world. I was fortunate enough to work closely with David Kelley, Bill Burnett, Michael Barry, Barry Katz, and Stuart Kendall. My recent work includes ui / ux design, design research, rapid prototyping, project management, and design thinking.

I love design because I love people. I love working in the trenches with my users, getting to know their worlds, and coming up with creative solutions to solve their various problems. Design is the way I understand the world and it gives me an opportunity to impact it.
