Patrick is absolutely thrilled to be joining the Creative Financial Planning family. Prior to the
COVID-19 pandemic, he spent more than a decade performing in musicals on professional
stages across North America. He received a BFA in Musical Theatre from Penn State University,
and as recently as 2020 was busy ringing doorbells across the country as an actor in the
national tour of Broadway’s The Book of Mormon. Other national tour credits include West Side
Story and Bullets Over Broadway.

During his time as a performer, Patrick often noted the need for financial guidance and
resources within various arts-based communities. Eager to help provide a solution for this
widespread need, Patrick received a Certificate in Financial Planning from Northwestern
University during Broadway’s initial Covid-related hiatus. After attending the Financial Planning
Association Virtual Externship in the summer of 2021, he decided to pursue financial planning
full time. He is currently on track to become a Certified Financial Planner® by the end of 2023.

During his free time, Patrick is a bit of a pyromaniac and loves building campfires. Having grown
up in an athletic family, he loves playing sports — especially tennis. You can find him “Downing
the Clowns” at his nearest Dave and Buster’s no less than once a week. He is also a weekly
volunteer for The Trevor Project, an LGBTQ+ youth-crisis service that is very near and dear to
his heart.

Patrick resides in Nyack, NY, with his fiancé, where they enjoy supporting local restaurants at
night while burning calories at the Rockland YMCA by morning. He looks forward to getting
married and raising kids in the near future.
