Hello, I'm Patrick. I'm a tenure track instructor at St. Johns River State College in Jacksonville, FL where I teach American National Government.

I'm also a doctoral candidate in Political Science at Florida International University's School of International and Public Affairs.

I'm currently finishing my dissertation entitled "Politics at the Human Scale" in which I explore the relationship between urban design and political participation.
