I love ideas and facilitating great ideas to fruition. I specialize in connecting people, resources, and causes for positive engagement opportunities – providing services to those who need them and connecting volunteers and supporters to worthy causes. I develop thoughtful plans for program, outreach, marketing, and fundraising goals that lead to results. I am a creative thinker and I enjoy the creative process in problem solving and planning programs, events, and campaigns that utilize print, digital, and social media forums to engage with constituents and the community. I’m a big-picture strategic thinker and a maximizer, who looks to make every detail fit for the most efficient and productive path.

YOUR STORY MATTERS

I love developing campaigns that use video, print, digital, social media, and events to build a following, educate the public, and deliver experiences that will inspire a community to support a worthy cause.

“Patrick helped us develop a robust marketing and fundraising strategy, getting us to a place where we have been able to secure financial stability by creating a diverse stream of funding sources.”

Consulting

Serving the community and those who are leading the way

I desire to see communities progress towards transformation in our hearts, minds, and actions. I believe we all have the infinite potential to be transformative agents from our business to our philanthropy. My intention is to be an agent that strengthens our efforts as a community. I do this by working collaboratively to build capacity and implement engagement strategies for faith-based missions, ministries, and nonprofits.  I take creative ideas and drive them through thoughtful common sense strategies. I understand that in order for any mission to thrive, leaders must be engaged internally to grow and adapt while people are being engaged externally to support a cause. I’m committed to serving the community and those who are leading the way for societal transformation.

“Patrick gave our organization an opportunity to think broadly about how we are communicating with people on all levels – through email, mail, in person, social media, and our website – by evaluating communication strategies that are tied into our fundraising platforms and thinking through how to communicate with people most effectively.”
Angela Bomgaars, Executive Director, Extreme Community Makeover

 

WATCH RHONDA’S STORY FROM DESPAIR TO HOPE
“It was like a reason to live. It was a flourishing time in my life. I just felt good about myself. I just felt a sense of belonging…”
Rhonda’s story is the beginning of Denver’s second tiny home village for those experiencing homelessness.
“The campaign that we built, under Patrick’s leadership, highlighted themes that emerged directly from the words and experiences of villagers of the previous tiny home village. Our constituency then responded to the message by launching their own fundraisers that would go towards our funding goals. Patrick’s work is thoughtful, creative, and crisp. He communicates messages clearly through multiple mediums in a way that connects with human beings.”
Cole Chandler, Executive Director,
Colorado Village Collaborative
