*******About Pat*******

I'm an Author and Sportswriter. I also love the business world where I'm a Strategic Business Advisor at my own consulting firm, The Infrastructure Company. My expertise is Time & Efficiency strategies and systems for small & medium sized growth companies. I'm also the Founder of Executive Training Camp that teaches & trains Executives, Managers, and Business Owners new strategies & skills to Gain Back and Free Up more Time in their business lives.

I'm also an avid basketball fan, having both played and followed the sport for nearly 20 years. I love all things basketball, including college and the NBA but my real love and passion are the Los Angeles Lakers, having grown up in Souther California and been a fan of the Purple and Gold since my youth.

I always wanted to be a sportswriter, since I read my first issue of Sports Illustrated. So, it’s only natural that I now get to write about sports here at the Bleacher Report. I’m very appreciative for the opportunity to write for B/R. The quality of all of B/R’s writing is so high, I’m proud to be a part of it.

I’m also very privileged to have true fans read my articles. My goal is to always put out reads that are insightful, not just game recaps, possibly controversial or a different take/angle on something, and always make sure what I write is fun to read.

I’m married, to a University of Kentucky basketball fan while I love UCLA. The day before our wedding at our rehearsal dinner, the two teams played in the NCAA tourney. Talk about being either on the side of the bride or groom!

One of my mantras is “Results Really Do Matter” and I believe I deliver, in everything I do.

When I’m not teaching, writing or watching and playing basketball, I’m hard at work on my first fiction novel, a Sports thriller. My wife and I live in North Carolina and California.

    you said in an article "To add to the challenge, the NBA doesn’t allow a team to play back to back home games." this is wrong; the clippers played a home game today vs. the grizzlies, and tomorrow they will be playing a home game vs. the magic.
