Well traveled like the rest of the TIFA family, Patrick has only yet to visit Antarctica. He lives in New Jersey, where he grew up and is a consultant by day and yogi by night. Patrick spent his younger days in sports and as an Eagle Scout as well as an active participant at his family’s church. After graduating from university, Patrick served as an officer in the U.S. Army where he spent a total of 18 months stationed in South Korea, and 36 months in the state of Oklahoma.


In 2013, Patrick left the Army, and attended business school at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee where he “discovered” yoga, and has now completed hundreds of hours of advanced training. When not on an airplane or the yoga mat, Patrick can be found cooking, reading, watching movies and live music, weight lifting or volunteering to serve the hungry and homeless.
