Patrick started writing for a startup newspaper in his hometown of Monroe, Michigan, when he was still in high school. That paper is now defunct, but Patrick's career in journalism has taken off over the ensuing decade. Patrick has written for national publications, including The A.V. Club and Paste, and a slew of Michigan-based publications, including the Detroit News, the Ann Arbor Observer, Hour Detroit, Pulp, MLive, and Real Detroit Weekly. He started writing for Concentrate in 2012 and has since become a regular contributor to its sister publications, Model D and Metromode.
Patrick graduated from Wayne State University in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in journalism. He lives in Ann Arbor. He can usually be found at the movies or in the woods when he's not pitching, editing, or writing stories.
