When Patrick is not hard at work in the gallery or orchestrating his next event, you can find him where ever the waves are. Patrick spends the summers chasing hurricane swell up and down the east coast, while winters are for the North Shore. Patrick has been swimming and pushing the limits in big waves since his love for surf photography was inspired during a winter trip to Hawaii. Always and forever will be, chasing the shot.
