Patrick grew up hunting and fishing throughout the west and has a deep love for western wildlife and land.  After graduating from Utah State University with a degree in wildlife management he went on to work in the Wildlife Department on the Deseret Land and Livestock ranch studying Mule deer and Elk interactions with domestic livestock, as well as Greater Sage Grouse.  With a young family, Patrick reluctantly left full-time wildlife management to pursue a career in education, but still remained active as a wildlife and lands consultant to numerous landowners.

With his children of sufficient age, Patrick has recently returned to land management full time. He specializes in assessing and designing wildlife management programs for landowners that maximize the economic benefit of wildlife on working ranches. Patrick believes that wildlife and agriculture are not only compatible, but mutually beneficial when proper management practices are utilized.

Patrick also owns Paleoland Holdings and American Fossil LLC, which specialize in paleontological assessment of western lands for economically viable fossil resources.  Patrick’s formal education includes a B.S. in Wildlife Management from Utah State University ’97, and a Masters of Educational Leadership from Southern Utah University ‘17.
