Hi I'm Patrick.

I'm a loyal son, husband, father, friend, brother and Red Sox fan. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of four children, have three younger sisters, and I am now blessed to be the father of three beautiful little girls. My wife and I have been married for over a decade and have lived in 5 different states as we have sought out educational and work opportunities. Gratefully, we were living in Boston when the Red Sox broke the curse and won the World Series. I have spent my entire career in the Finance/Accounting world having worked as an auditor, an investment banker and now in a large healthcare organization. On a personal level, I strive to run every day, and I would like to believe that I still have game on the basketball court. I love spending time with my wife and my girls, and I also try to carve out as much time as I can to read great books.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace and joy. My personal conviction of the Church has increased throughout my life, and every year, I am more grateful that I am a member of the Church because of the positive impact that it has on me and on my family. I know that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and as I have studied and lived the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have grown closer to Him, which is ultimately why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in Jesus Christ on a daily basis through personal and family prayer and scripture study. My days go markedly better when I create time for my spiritual growth and development. Our home is also significantly calmer and happier when we sit down as a family to read and discuss the scriptures. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have been actively engaged in many activities such as teaching young children, teaching Sunday School to adults, and leading and participating in service activities in the local community.
