Welcome to my website! My name is Patrick. In my free time, I read, write, teach myself to code and hang out with friends. If you’d like to find out more about me, you can follow me on Twitter or Facebook.
I’m currently on an exciting trip to the Midwestern US, where I’m spending a year at a local community college. I’ll return to Europe in late summer 2018, full of new experiences and fresh perspectives – and hungry for more.
