Patrick is an avid surfer who lived in Las Vegas/Los Angeles for 5 years and Tamarindo for 5 years, moving back to Whistler, BC in 2011 to hone his snowboarding skills and work in the emerging cannabis industry. Born in Vancouver, Canada, he graduated from St. George’s Boys School and then attended the University of British Columbia (BA Political Science) . He is a recipient of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award.

Patrick was fortunate enough to have a couple of mentors as he navigated his way through the formative years developing his business sense.  And to this day, he spends time bouncing things off people who provide a different perspective as the value that is offered is immeasurable.
