2007 - Present

Patrick is the Director of the Urban Design Studio at the University of Louisville.

For more than 15 years he has been driven to improve the quality of place through the development of programs and projects that activate and pre-vitalize underutilized spaces. He has a particular focus on exploring ways to integrate nature into cities, understanding how the design and function of cities impacts health, and engaging the community with the goal to rebuilding the fragmented urban fabric of cities. Over the past seven years, Patrick has also worked as an urban designer for Hyphae Design Lab out of Oakland, California, YARD & Company out of Cincinnati, and the Louisville Downtown Partnership.
