B.S., Loyola University New Orleans
Double Major in Marketing and Public Relations
Business Development Director
As the Director of Business Development, Patrick is responsible for ensuring that all of Online Optimism’s clients are happy and optimistic about the state of their business.
Patrick graduated from Loyola University in 2013 with a degree in Marketing and Public Relations. After graduation, he was hired as the first full-time employee at Online Optimism, where he worked until, in 2014, he moved to Austin, TX to work on the Community Operations team at Facebook. Texas just wasn’t as fun as New Orleans, so in 2014 he decided to move back home, where he worked at Nola Media Group for two and a half years as an Account Executive, helping businesses large and small with their digital marketing needs. In January 2018, Patrick came full-circle, returning to Online Optimism as the Director of Business Development. In 2019, Patrick won the Online Salesperson of the Year award for the New Orleans Ad Club.
When not working, Patrick enjoys cooking, bread baking, watching sports, bike riding and slowly but surely trying every po-boy in Orleans Parish. He will gladly tell you about his favorite po-boy places for each respective category.
