About Patrick

Prior to joining the Army, I wasn't going anywhere in life. Two days after 9/11 I dropped out of community college and joined the Army. I served in the 173rd Airborne Brigade based out Vicenza, Italy and deployed 3 times with them - 1x to Iraq for 12 months, and 2x to Afghanistan (12 months, and 15 months).
I was named the 1st ever NFL-Pat Tillman Military Scholar and a Horato Alger Scholar which allowed me the opportunity to complete a Masters Degree in Sport Management. I worked in the NFL for a short period of time and recently been a self-employed leadership development consultant. I also have a Masters Degree in Organization Development.
