A little more about Patrick

Patrick blends a deep knowledge of design with a pragmatic consulting approach to ensure the best ideas become real experiences.

As Managing Director, Patrick guides the evolution of Adaptive Path’s services in response to the emerging needs of our clients. He is also an in demand consultant who helps organizations envision, architect, and manifest new product and service experiences. He’s a passionate storyteller, facilitator, and teacher.

Patrick joined the San Francisco studio after nearly a decade of service at Macquarium Intelligent Communications, where he built the firm’s user experience practice from the ground up, and crafted experience strategies across numerous industries and problem spaces.

He received a MS in Information Design & Technology from the Georgia Institute of Technology, but he is thankful everyday for his humanities degree in English from the Honors College at the University of South Carolina. In fact, Patrick urges leaders in business and technology to look to the humanities for inspiration as we move beyond the industrial age.

When not scribbling design ideas on walls, Patrick can usually be found walking around a city in search of a great meal, an engaging film, an improve class, or a good cup of coffee. He also loves to travel and hopes you will invite him to speak, teach, or consult in your neck of the woods soon.
