Patrick has a depth and breadth of skills that make him a huge asset to any product team. I had the pleasure of working with Patrick for 3 years. He is consistently proactive and a consummate product manager: layering important tasks across the software development lifecycle to ensure the engineers, designers, content managers, and marketing teams are coordinated in working on the highest priority tasks. In addition, Patrick was consistently called on for "other duties as assigned" delivering high quality, high impact work in a variety of roles.
