PATRICK OLIVER JONES - Host / Writer / Producer

Patrick grew up the only child of a single mother, only to discover later in adulthood that he actually had four half-sisters. These twists of fate have continued to follow him as he's moved from Disney World in Orlando to Jubilee! in Las Vegas, from cruise ships to national tours and biggest of all, getting married in September 2018! Now he lives in Manhattan, doing commercials and performing in staged readings and Off-Off-Broadway productions here and there. But Patrick tends to leave the city more often than not for work in regional theaters across the country. So until he can put those suitcases away for good and enjoy that long-awaited Broadway contract, he's got this podcast to help him dream big while living small.
