Patrick formerly worked with High Tech High as an art educator at High Tech High Chula Vista and as a graduate student in the M.Ed. in Educational Leadership program. For years he worked with the HTH GSE to help design and facilitate massive open online learning experiences such as New School Creation, Learning Mindsets & Skills, and How To Make a Comic Book.
Patrick's main passion in life is learning and projects. Within his work at HTH GSE he is focused on how we can scale exceptional learning experiences so that populations worldwide can have access to them. Patrick specifically believes that great learning experiences contain a balance of well-thought out structure and room for improvised creativity. He hopes that, through his role as Director of Experience Design, he can help audiences get access to all that HTH has to offer as well as help HTH grow as an organization by being connected to a network of worldwide learners.
Patrick is also the founder PYD.Studio, MIT | Gradcommx, Podcation, and MakingComics.com.
