He enjoys hands-on work, and is fascinated by taking things apart, understanding how they work, and then rebuilding them. A natural problem-solver, Patrick has served, among other roles, as a maintenance supervisor and in hotel management. He enjoys the peace of the Dharmakaya Center grounds and the opportunity to be with people from around the world.
