Full Bio


Patrick grew up in a football town. Auburn, Alabama and the people of Auburn are the inspiration for many of Patrick's songs and stories. In case you don't fully grasp how intense the love of football is in Auburn, Patrick and his wife Lesley got married there in the university chapel in the fall of 2004. The wedding had to be planned on an away football game weekend; otherwise no one but family would have shown up; even the family is still questionable. After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1994, Patrick decided to turn his passion into a profession and moved to Nashville, Tennessee.

While living in Nashville, Patrick was a regular performer at the Bluebird Cafe. The Bluebird is a world famous songwriters "joint" that has been known to be host to some of the best songwriters in the world. Patrick will eagerly tell you that he is NOT one of the best songwriters in the world. Although Patrick wrote good songs while in Nashville, he loves to say that the guys who get rich write great songs. The songs that Patrick became known for around Music City were his funny songs. These were the songs that he wrote for fun and had no real chance of making any money, until now.

Patrick has combined his funny songs, stories and message into a program that is taking the meetings industry by storm. When not performing and speaking, Patrick enjoys spending time with his wife Lesley and their three children, Jack, Robert, and Meredith, in Burlington, North Carolina. He hates jogging but does it anyway and is a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Patrick competed in his first triathlon in 2008 and although called it "the most miserable experience of my life", he is hooked and now competes around the country. Do you know what you call someone who comes in last place in a triathlon?.........A TRIATHLETE. "We are all competitors," Patrick says, "on the mat, on the field, in the classroom or in our jobs. The one who wins is usually the one who best plans to do so."

Patrick’s down home style of musical comedy can be heard along-side Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Jeanne Robertson on the SiriusXM Radio Family Comedy Channels. For ten years, Patrick wrote songs and radio jingles for a Nashville based publishing company. As a regular performer at the world famous Blue Bird Café, Patrick discovered the art of blending song and story which lead him to writing his first comedy album “Married Man”. After being picked up by SiriusXM Radio, Patrick has developed a reputation for his brand of humor that he has delivered to over 1000 audiences in almost every state. One audience member described him as what happens when keynotes, comedy, and concerts…collide
