Patrick was born and raised in Somerset, England. He studied agriculture at Somerset College of Technology, and worked in dairy farming until his wanderlust and passion for sailing led him to become a professional crewman and captain. He eventually sailed his way to North America, settling just outside of Montreal, where he worked as a machine technician for many years. His sailing and mechanical skills have transferred well to tree work.
