Patrick comes to NEMO from Massachusetts although he is no stranger to New Hampshire. He grew up enjoying frequent camping trips with family in Mount Washington Valley and still returns to North Conway whenever possible to hike, bike, ski, and occasionally climb. Patrick’s passion for outdoor recreation encouraged him to explore other areas of the country as well. While based in Boulder, Colo., he adventured throughout the Rocky Mountains, the deserts of the Southwest, and the West Coast. Between road trips and days at the ski hill, he managed enough studying to earn a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from CU-Boulder. Family, educational opportunities, and the White Mountains lured Patrick back east where he earned his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences from Harvard and then worked 4-years with General Electric in Research and Development. Previously, Patrick has worked in the outdoor industry as a bicycle mechanic, shoe shipper (La Sportiva), and rock climbing guide. Now, he devotes his engineering skills and passion for outdoor adventure to make innovative products for NEMO.
