Patrick first got interested in software when he learned how to build a text-based basketball game on his TI-83 calculator in 8th grade. In college, he moved on to Visual Basic Atari-type games and the rest was history. Primarily a .NET developer, Patrick works at HMB, a consulting firm out of Columbus, OH (and Louisville!) and gets to get his hands dirty working with a variety of technologies, architectures, and teams. His interests range from building user-centered Web Apps, effectively managing teams, mentoring, learning, playing sports, and travel.
