Starting at the beginning. My name is Patrick and I was born and raised in Houston Texas. I love the fact that my name was given to me by my birth mother and my adoptive parents loved it so much, they kept it when they adopted me. Only wandered away from my hometown to attend college. Having been a competitive swimmer since i was 12 years old, i attended University of Texas @ Austin on a full swimming scholarship. I still participate in Master's swimming which allows me to train and compete until i leave this earth.
I am an AVID live music lover and I am currently on the Board of Directors of the Houston Blues Society. This exposes me to as much live music as I can handle. It has also allowed me to develop many dear, supportive friends in the music community. I hang out with them and participate in Music festivals all over Houston and beyond. And truly, if I had not had this community to support me during my run with cancer (my wife was my savior), I would have had a much more difficult time with it.
My major in school was Pre-med but organic chemistry diverted my path, so to speak.
I have been in the home building industry for just over 40 years. The familiarity of it is getting uninspiring to say the least. I would like to play and learn in an entirely new venture & realm. Stretch my mind and skills building a business in a new niche and online. Sounds pretty cool to me!! Patrick
