To learn more about Pat, read over the short Q&A session we had with him.
What is your hometown?
I’m from Fairfield, CT. I’ve lived there since I was a kid.
What did you do before working here?
I was (and still am) a student at Purdue University. Two years to go!
What do you like most about your job?
I really enjoy being able to work on something that impacts people. In my classes, I normally work on a project for a week or two, and then it collects dust and is never used again. Working here, I get to help with software that people actually use and are impacted by. It’s a cool experience!
What would people be surprised to know about you?
People would probably be surprised that I’m a huge history nerd. I love history classes, learning about history, playing historical video games, etc. I also know a strange amount of random geography and historical facts.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?
I enjoy running and working out at the gym in my free time. I try to get in some form of exercise every day of the week.
