Hi, I'm Patrick.
I'm a writer, reporter, and editor by trade and by training. Currently, you can find me as the music editor at MTV News, where I've worked since 2015. I've also written for Billboard, Stereogum, the Syracuse New Times, Charleston's Post & Courier, and more.
I've lived in New York State my entire life — Buffalo, Rochester, Olean, Mayville, Queens, Syracuse, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, in that order — and studied journalism at St. Bonaventure (class of 2012) before getting my master's via the Goldring Arts Journalism program at Syracuse University's Newhouse school in 2015.
Below, you can find what I've done professionally with that training.
