Patrick writes about food and restaurants for SuperVegan. He is an accomplished vegan cook and widely-regarded expert of New York City's vegetarian restaurants (by his friends) - his March '06 article in Satya magazine profiling some of the city's best veggie bets is still widely referenced and proudly displayed by restaurants in their windows.
Since tagging along with his college activist sister at the age of 12 to campaign against sweatshops, Patrick has organized scores of rallies, trainings, and conferences in the animal rights, human rights, and environmental movements.
When not writing for SuperVegan (or eating, cooking, or sleeping), he works to fight animal cruelty as the New York state director for The Humane Society of the United States, the nation's largest animal protection organization.
In his prior lives, he worked at a corporate PR firm where he handled media for the City of New York's animal rescue efforts through the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and the Chinatown neighborhood through The September 11th Fund's Explore Chinatown campaign, and was the executive director of the Student Animal Rights Alliance, a field organizer for Amnesty International, and a media assistant for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
He has also served as a lead organizer for the Animal Defense League and Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade, student-area coordinator for Amnesty International, and youth advisory board member of the Center for Environmental Citizenship (now part of the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund).
Patrick firmly believes a meal is not complete unless it has at least three courses.
