Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, I grew up the only child of a single mother, only to discover later in adulthood that I actually have four half-sisters. These twists of fate have continued to follow me all throughout my life and career, whether working for the Mouse in Orlando, wearing next to nothing in Las Vegas, or finally leaving cruise ships for the bright lights of New York City. It's been a 30-year adventure, and though I still travel for various theater jobs or commercial shoots, Manhattan is now my home.
THEATER: Credits include the original cast of First Wives Club in Chicago with Faith Prince and Carmen Cusack, The Addams Family National Tour with Douglas Sills, and the Evita National Tour with Caroline Bowman. My Off-Broadway debut came in 2010 with The Extraordinary Ordinary and numerous world premieres, staged readings, workshops have followed. Among my favorite regional productions would be Man of la Mancha, which I have performed four times, three times as the Duke/Carrasco and once as Cervantes/Quixote. There's also Fun Home (Henry Award nominee for Best Leading Actor in a Musical), Crazy for You (SALT Award Nominee for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Musical), and Bridges of Madison County at Theater Raleigh.
TELEVISION: I have been the spokesman in several national commercials as well as co-starring roles on primetime television dramas like BLUE BLOODS and LAW & ORDER: CI. Recently, I have appeared in several shows for Discovery ID like Six Degrees of Murder and The Perfect Murder as well as a leading role in the popular History Channel series The Food That Built America.
HOSTING & VOICEOVER: You'll hear my voice in commercials like an NFL spot for Bud Light as well as audio dramas like Ninth World Journal. I have also hosted events ranging from large national conventions and grand openings to intimate one-on-one, red carpet interviews.
PODCASTS: Since 2017, I've been producer and host of the Top 25 theater podcast Why I’ll Never Make It, I explore the setbacks and challenges actors and creative professionals face all while challenging the notion of what it means to “make it” in this business. Interviews range from such notables as co-host Tiffany Coyne (LET'S MAKE A DEAL) and actor Jelani Alladin (Broadway’s FROZEN) to work-a-day actors, composers, directors, and teachers. I have also been a guest on other podcasts like Actor Aesthetic, EntertainmentX, Podcast Pontifications, Eff Your Fears, and Mental Talk.
When Patrick goes on in a role, he soars. And he had some big shoes to fill, particularly with Lurch.
Addams Family National Tour
Every time I hear Patrick's voice on Why I’ll Never Make It, I just want to put on a cardigan, grab a scotch and cigar in front of my fireplace, and listen.
Actor & Producer
I am so glad to have finally had the opportunity to work with Patrick, a joy from start to finish and such a talented and positive spirit.
