Patrick first fell for public relations when he heard how unhappy his friends were at their jobs. Bored with their work? Do the same thing every day? Wear a tie to the office? He felt his body being drained like it was kryptonite. Thankfully, he quickly found a different path. Armed with a bachelor’s degree in communications and an internship at a boutique New York City PR firm, he hit the Atlanta market at full speed in 2015.
Now with five years of agency experience under his belt, Patrick has worked with clients in a variety of industries: from B2B AI tech to banking to retail and almost everything in between. He most recently served as a senior account executive specializing in media relations and content development at a top 15 Atlanta PR firm. An avid writer, Patrick is always looking for ways to improve and sharpen content whether it be long-form articles, thought leadership blogs or snappy social posts.
In fact, Patrick spent two months in Berlin last summer writing his first book and has a personal blog where he publishes short stories. Otherwise, he can usually be found playing soccer in Piedmont Park, goofing off with his two pups or attending a concert at Terminal West.
