Speaker Bio
Originally from Texas, Patrick holds a bachelor's degree in computer science from The University of Texas at Austin and a master's degree in education from Harvard University. Following opportunities, he moved to Los Angeles, where he worked three years as a software engineer in the defense industry. Unfulfilled and disillusioned with corporate life, he began exploring his creative side and soon discovered a passion for both photography and hairstyling.

He assisted for a year before securing a spot at the prestigious Michael John Salon. In 2013, he entered and won the American Crew All Star Challenge and in 2014, he finished as the runner-up. The following year, he added a barbering license to his resume.

Presently, he works as a barber in his own studio, travels the country teaching hair classes, and is represented by Exclusive Artists Management, working with celebrities as a session hairstylist. His work can be seen on the red carpet and has been published in FLAUNT, Nylon, ELLE, The Hollywood Reporter, and many other influential editorials.
