    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 2

    My name is Patrick, and I’m a designer/writer/singer/dancer who focuses his creativity and in a capacity that champions my love for pop culture and comedy. You can check out what I've produced at Design has been my profession since 2011. I’ve designed apps and have branded projects from yoga practices to sports bars. Design proposals are won or lost in their narratives – which is how I learned to write. In addition to my more marketable skill sets – I have a genetic predisposition to entertain and giggle. This oftentimes manifests in my work. Today, I'm working in the overlap of writing, design, and comedy – producing funny content that looks great for fun people. If you have a project that aligns with those values, I'd love to hear from you.
