Pat discovered his abilities to play music accidentally while building a chicken coop on the family farm. At the age of ten, he noticed the rhythmic pattern he was making with a hammer and decided to find some coffee cans and later, basically anything he could use as a drum. Pat has been involved in percussion and drumming for over half his life. He has been in several bands throughout Chicago's south suburbs and in northwest Indiana. For over several years he called the Professions his home while playing a wide variety of cover songs and originals created by his band mates. Pat's style derives from several influential drummers and he consistently strives to provide a solid foundation for the band.
