After receiving a diploma in mechanical engineering technology (Canada 1990), Patrick spent some time in the field of computer assisted design. But he quickly turned his attention to applied programming in mechanical engineering. It was in this field that he went on to become a programmer, analyst and teacher. He has practiced his profession in Sherbrooke (Quebec), Ottawa (Ontario) and, finally, Chattanooga (Tennessee). After a decade of focusing on programming, Patrick headed back to school for a somewhat radical change in direction – television production. He then worked in post production (editing) for various television series broadcast throughout Quebec by Just for Laughs and the Canal Z and Canal D cable networks.
His love for media production and his enduring interest in science lead him to join Pascale Lehoux and her team in 2007.
