About Pat

Pat has presented Corporate Team Building workshops for Carnival, Arvida, Merrill Lynch, Marriott, The Sports Authority and many others. He has facilitated everything from improv games to sketch comedy catered to the specific desires of the companies. In addition to his work in the U.S. Pat has performed and presented workshops in the Bahamas, St. Lucia, Thailand, Japan and Tahiti. He coached the Offensive Line at Grand Valley State University. The writer/director/editor of over ten short films is a native of Merrillville, Indiana. 

Pat began his career as an actor at the Player’s Workshop of the Second City in Chicago.  He continued working in improvisation and eventually performed in over 1,600 improv shows.  Pat suffered having to work for Club Med in their Entertainment Department in places such as St. Lucia, Thailand and Tahiti.  Continuing to have fun in Asia, Pat moved to Tokyo where he collaborated with an all Japanese comedy group for a year.  Only making sense, he moved to Miami after his Tokyo gig, where he started his film making career.  As the founder of South Florida ComedySportz, Pat led his troupe to the 1996 national championship and took home the prestigious "Meaningless Cup". Pat has trained many other top grade improvisers. Pat finally made his way to Los Angeles in the fall of ’98. In LA, he has written and produced several short films.  His shorts “Sexy Seniors”, “Braggin’ Rights”, and “Three Specials” have all been nominated to at least one film festival as a finalist to their Grand Jury Award...and yes...he once ate a tree.
