Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Patrick moved to Oregon about five years ago to pursue school. He recently graduated from Oregon State University (Go Beavers!) with a degree in Natural Resources. Patrick has a great appreciation for nature and loves talking about the natural attributes, flora and fauna along the river, especially birds and geological features. This will be his third season rowing for Morrisons, and he can’t wait to be back on his favorite river. Aside from the Rogue, he has also rafted the McKenzie, North Umpqua, and South Santiam. Outside of rafting, Patrick is an avid disc golfer and loves to fish in Oregon’s bountiful rivers.
