    “Patrick is a rockstar. He rolled up his sleeves, immersed himself in the gestalt of the company and produced the highest quality work which showed initiative, originality, attention to detail and an ability to listen to what I wanted and reflect it back in the form of tangible prototypes. If you are lucky enough to work with Patrick, do. Great person, team member and leader.”

    Ann Greenberg, Founder of Sceneplay and Co-Founder Gracenote and ION.

    “We’ve worked together at least four times on some amazing projects.  He is the best VP Product I’ve ever worked with.  I’d work with him again in a heartbeat.   That’s the highest praise I can give anyone.   Plus one thing that I love about Patrick is that he will take problems off your desk and bring them back solved.   A great guy to have on a startup team.”

    “I’ve known Patrick since the dawn of the Internet. He’s a man of many firsts. Podcasts, Mobile Video, Texting as marketing tool….he’s a non-tech executive’s lieutenant who can make all tech specs come alive. He’s highly adaptable, insatiably curious, tinkers and studies and researches to make things work. A top-line thinker who can focus on the vision. He’s very networked and can get to the right people for answers or in the room! Consider your interview with him a free hour of consultation!”
