As a technophile who is ever fascinated by the natural world, Patrick actively explores the connections between ecological and manufactured systems. He began his studies at the University of Washington in bioengineering, but his passion for design led him to pursue landscape architecture. Working in this field allows him to apply his understanding of how things work to create simple and refined solutions in the built environment.
With roots in both the Pacific Northwest and Southern California, Patrick deeply appreciates the complexities of these two diverse regions. In his recent experience working in an interdisciplinary environment at Rios Clementi Hale Studios in Los Angeles, Patrick found ways to meet the challenges of design in urban areas to energize public open space. Likewise, his work at GGN allows him to further his collaborative approach to creative and artful problem solving.
Outside of the office, Patrick is fond of reading, roaming, exploring and working with his hands in garden and garage alike.
