Patrick joined Council for a Strong America in 2015 as a Program Assistant out of our Washington D.C. office, and now works from our San Francisco office as a Senior Associate. Previously, he worked as an editor and journalist with his university’s paper, covering local news and issues pertaining to politics, science, and drug policy reform. In 2013, Patrick interned as a journalist with The Hill, and interviewed political figures like Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Sen.

He hopes to one day travel to all 50 states, and eventually live abroad.
