Patrick is an LA-based filmmaker who has written for TV, film and video games for Tony Scott (True Romance), Tom Pellegrini (Jiro Dreams of Sushi), and Vincent Ngo (Hancock). After experiencing much frustration within the Hollywood meat grinder he decided to take control of his career by directing his own projects. In the past two years, he has written and directed three short films, a digital comedy skit series, and three branded content pieces for the ID Agency.
His directorial debut, "TAG", premiered at the 35th Annual CAAMFest 2017, played at over two dozen film festivals around the world, and is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
He just completed "For Your Consideration", a documentary on the “Harvey Weinstein Casting Couch” statue that shook up the 2081 Oscars’ ceremony. The 20-minute documentary tells the tale of “a pop culture provocateur (Plastic Jesus) and Naked Trump sculptor (Ginger), who team up to take down Harvey Weinstein, creating an Oscars statue that goes viral and incites further conversation." MeToo activist Dawn Dunning is featured in the film along with feminist street artist Meg Zany and right-wing guerilla artist Sabo. “FYC” is currently making the festival rounds with screenings at American Docs, Cleveland International FF, Melbourne Documentary Festival, Doc Fest San Francisco, Los Angeles Asian Pacific FF, and others.

Patrick’s latest project is "Mommy's Little Monster", a psychological horror short that he plans to turn into a feature. “Mommy’s Little Monster” starring Jenny Pellicer and Tate Birchmore will be released in summer of 2019.
He has a Masters in Film/TV Screenwriting from Cal State Northridge and a BA in Journalism from San Diego State. In addition, he's a freelance writer/editor, who has been published in over 50 digital and print markets (LA Magazine, E! Online, Kore Asian Media, OC Register, XXL, MEL Magazine, LA Taco), has authored two travel guide books, and is currently an Entertainment Editor at Mandatory.
