Patrick was born and raised in Grand Rapids. In college, he ventured to the east side of the state where he received a Masters of Architecture from University of Detroit Mercy in 2009. Patrick then settled in to an architectural firm in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he worked on various large-scale commercial projects around North America including retail, health care, office, and multifamily developments. After completing his licensure in 2013, Patrick and his wife, Kelley, decided to move their young family back to the west side. Since then, Patrick has found a home as Project Architect at Ghafari Associates where he has enjoyed reacquainting himself with the West Michigan lifestyle. He treasures the opportunity to enhance the skyline and community that he has known his entire life.
Patrick is a registered architect in Michigan and is NCARB-certified. He has been a member of AIA Grand Rapids since 2013. In his free time, Patrick enjoys golfing, fishing, woodworking, and spending time with his family.
