Hi I'm Patrick

I grew up in Texas. Lived in San Francisco and am now back in school getting my MBA in LA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently getting my MBA and am enjoying being a student again. I'm an avid foodie and love everything from greasy street tacos to roasted bone marrow. My favorite food has to be burgers and I'm always in search of the best gourmet burger I can find. I love sports, especially college sports and I think that the first day of March Madness should be a national holiday.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon and it has shaped my views on God and life. I've had so many experiences that have led to me continuing in the faith as I've become an adult. It is my compass and helps me be a better person. I'm grateful for the guidance and knowledge I have gained through being active in the faith and attending church. I have met so many people that are amazing examples and friends through the church. I've come to know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and a perfect example in His son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I attend church each week and teach a Sunday school class. I love having the opportunity to teach others and feel like I learn more then they do by preparing for the class. I also have four families that I visit on a monthly basis to share messages with them and help them out with anything they are in need of. The main way I can live my faith is to try to be more like the Savior. It's not always easy, but loving those around us is the most important thing we can do.
