Way back in 2010, Patrick decided to trade the dry heat of PHX for the muggy hot summers of NOLA to attend Tulane University. During his initial years in the bayou state, he found a passion for living the slow-going Big Easy life, but a desire to work in a fast-paced, change-driving environment to fuel his sense of curiosity and yearning to learn something new everyday. Then came his first agency gig, where he discovered the ways of the digital marketing landscape and the value of driving measurable results, as well as how much making an impact on a business’s bottom line meant to him.
In 2018, Patrick joined ARPR’s Army of Awesome and immersed himself in the B2B tech landscape, mastering ARPR’s practice groups by managing ads, SEO, website optimizations, email marketing, reporting and more for cyber, health IT, cloud and fintech clients. On top of playing a role in all of the agency’s practice groups, he lives out ARPR’s Spirited Ideals every day, making sure to contribute his part to the “awesome” of ARPR as reigning Ping Pong Champ.
Within three years, Patrick has grown from digital marketing manager to an award-winning digital marketing director, where he leads SEO and PPC initiatives for clients across all four practice groups that often shatter industry-average results. In November 2021, Patrick won the PR News Platinum PR Award for Measurement Expert of the year on behalf of his reporting and analysis work.
He is a reporting guru, driver of conversions, internal strategist and trainer to the rest of the Army of Awesome – helping the team stay up to date on the convergence of PR and marketing in order to consistently deliver top-tier integrated communications results.
When he’s not clicking, training or strategizing, you can find him hanging out with his pup Callie and his fiancée Abbie either at a dive bar or coffee shop in New Orleans.
