Patrick has been a diehard media devotee since he was a kid, publishing a Letter to the Editor in Time Magazine at 12 years old and starting a collection of New York Times front pages with historic banner headlines. His obsession crescendos every ten years with an “end of the decade” New Year’s Eve party featuring walls plastered with iconic magazine covers, guests costumed as era-defining figures, and playlists ritualizing the decade’s biggest anthems. 

This unique perspective guides PKPR’s mission: elevating clients as leading voices reshaping their industries and the larger culture itself. Whether platforming a tech insurgent or movement-making cause, Patrick and his colleagues help clients define new categories while seamlessly inserting them into the pivotal conversations redefining our times.
