A Los Angeles native, Patrick developed an interest in photography and motion pictures at a young age. He went on to study film at the University of California at Santa Barbara and Brooks Institute of Photography. While in college, he began interning at DigitalFilm Tree and was quickly hired on full-time, working as an online editor for shows such as NBC’s Scrubs, while also exploring his growing interest in color by serving as an assistant colorist on various projects. In 2008, Patrick launched into color full-time, working on Everybody Hates Chris as the Lead Colorist. The following year, both Everybody Hates Chris and another show he worked on, Weeds, were nominated for an Emmy in cinematography.
