Patrick honed his mind on the whetstone of ancient philosophy, a discipline that demands strong and sustained attention to language. His professors at Boston University armed him with a passion for precision and a sixth sense for bunk, demonstrating that the bare facts—when artfully arranged—are the surest tools of persuasion. He's served as an editor of Arche, BU's journal of undergraduate philosophy, which he enjoyed as an opportunity to test his talent for academic writing and critical analysis. As an editor, he juggled the revision, proofreading, and fact-checking of a mountain of submissions while coordinating with the rest of the editorial staff to meet stringent deadlines. He also spent six months writing content for a litany of smiling clients in Virginia, during which time he swiftly adapted to the peculiarities of writing for the web. Patrick is eager to continue cultivating a first-rate writing portfolio in diverse industries.
