About Patrick

As an Actor
A fixture in the NY Indie Scene since 2005, Patrick has appeared as an actor in some capacity in well over 50 productions. From general background on some of the biggest television shows in the world, to featured roles on cable crime dramas, to principal and leading roles in a wide variety of independent films.

Starting with his breakout role, portraying Billy Cassidy on "Zombie Hunters: City of the Dead" ( a series he developed in NYC), he has gone on to bring a non-standard voice to many characters that would otherwise have been left in an emotional mid-range. Taking on the stranger roles out there is sometimes a gamble, but he has tackled those challenges head-on.

Currently, Patrick is starring in the web series "Mastic PD" (late Summer 2018), as one of the main characters in Matthew J. Kaplan's new film "It's Time For Tea", as a supporting player in "Dutch", by Mark Boutros, and in featured roles on ID Channel's "The Perfect Murder" and "A Crime To Remember". He is also playing the lead in the upcoming psychological thriller "Unwelcome Advances", which is a story about obsession and the danger it causes when it drives an already unstable man to terrifying extremes.


As a Director:
Patrick started his film career in the opposite order than most do. As just about everyone in the industry began as an actor who one day dreams of directing scenes, he started as a director from day one and worked backwards into the acting world, slowly becoming comfortable and well-known for both.

After the first season of "Zombie Hunters: City of the Dead" was complete, attention was turned to the science-fantasy film "Aemorraghe", which eventually screened as an Official Selection in twenty-nine international film festivals across the globe (premiering at the Macabre Faire Film Festival in NY), bringing in eight awards including Best Production Design of 2014 at Macabre and Best Short Film at it's London premiere.

Upon completion of Episode 9 and 10 of Zombie Hunters, and during the filming of Episodes 11 and 12, Patrick went on to co-write and co-direct ten episodes of the "Mastic PD" web series (with creative partner Lauren Loizidis). During filming of this series, he wrote and co- directed the short film "Slingspeare" (with Mark Boutros).

A few months later, he wrote and directed the moody sci-fi noir film "Impervia", which debuted in January of 2017 once again at Macabre Faire (with TEN awards nominations at it's premiere, winning four: Best Sound, Best Costumes, Best Cinematography, and Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, The film also took Overall Audience Choice for Best Film). "Impervia" has been accepted into twenty-eight international film festivals to date, with eleven award wins and sixteen other nominations.

Currently, Patrick is in pre-production for his latest film "Identity Check", starring Lauren Cover, Marc Abbott, Matthew J. Kaplan, and Heather Drew. It is slated for a mid-2019 release .
