Pat, it seems, has always been making stuff out of other stuff. A classic tinkerer and salvager, Pat spends his days creating functional and ornamental pieces out of dysfunctional parts. In fact, he agrees that everything is more than the sum of its parts. But he often adds, "there is more than one sum out of every part." Pat has a bachelor's degree in Postmodern Theory which means nothing and makes him uniquely qualified for just about anything. He has a fascination with reuse, recycling and refabrication as well as a healthy obsession with the Space Needle. All items viewable on his website, in his portfolio and in his home were created and assembled using futuristic artifacts from decades past. Pat was raised in the Pacific Northwest, the land of the Salish Sea's people, where he continues to reside and focus on his craft as well as hone his antifa skills.
