Born in Glenwood Springs, CO, Patrick has called this mountain town home since 1982. He has always loved the outdoor opportunities here and has been active in his pursuits. Patrick first started guiding for Blue Sky Adventures in 2002 as a college sophomore and has grown with the company since. As a recreation and tourism major at Colorado State University, he then transitioned from raft guide to an internship and then to manager after his graduation from CSU in 2004. In 2007, he became co-owner of Blue Sky. In 2012, with the addition of Canyon Bikes, they became a full fledged adventure company. Since this time he has worked hard to grow the company while maintaining the best staff and providing the safest, most enjoyable rafting adventure possible. With the addition of Colorado Overlander, Patrick, with the help of his family, is excited to help define the “Overland” rental market in North America.
