Patrick started with MAX in July of 2019, coming from his own freelance company for the past 10 years, prior to that working at a full-service advertising agency. He’s been working in and around all facets of design for business-to-business since the mid-80's, with some time also spent working sporting goods retail. Patrick grew up in Browerville, a small dairy town in central Minnesota, only a block away from the Land O Lake milk plant. After graduating from Browerville High School, he attended and graduated from Bemidji State University with a bachelor of science degree majoring in advertising, graphic design and technical illustration with an emphasis on graphics management and print production. With varied talents and interests, Patrick keeps busy as a MN DNR certified firearms and advanced archery instructor, serves on the Industrial Technology and Advertising Design Board for Bemidji State University and the See Gull Estate property advisory board as president, and volunteers at the Brainerd Family YMCA and Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity. Now a Brainerd area resident with his wife Julie and son Jacob, when he's not at work Patrick enjoys spending time outdoors, fishing and hunting.
