Patrick is a proud native of Indiana, corn’s true home. He moved to New Haven in 2018 to begin working at ECV, and he is willing to give the corn here a chance. Before coming to New Haven, Patrick lived in Germany for a year studying theology. Before that, he served for several years in the ministry of the Presbyterian church in South Africa. He believes most people are far more interesting than they think, and he is excited to be at ECV, a community of interesting people who are also excited to meet interesting people all over New Haven. He is passionate about discipleship, which means figuring out together how to follow Christ. His hobbies include wondering about things, staring at nothing in particular, and not talking about himself on the internet. He’s married to Sofia, whom he loves. They have two cats, about whom his feelings are more ambivalent.
