About the author
Past colleagues say Pat converted to the dark side when he left his 12-year career as a newspaper reporter to work in PR, but we’re glad he did. After more than a decade of dogging politicians, cops and other newsmakers, Pat’s new obsession is pitching solid stories to gain publicity for clients. As such, Pat is also our go-to guy for all things media. Plenty of his press releases have seen success in the San Francisco Chronicle, Denver Post, Miami Herald, San Diego Union-Tribune, Dallas Morning News and Boston Globe. When he’s not feeding his news addiction, Pat travels. He has visited nearly 30 countries and hopes to check off half of Africa.
