RevZilla’s longest standing employee, Patrick has been with the company since shortly after the beginning. He will often reminisce of the days spent working from the warehouse, when the entire company operated out of an un-finished stock room space with no heat or A/C. His dedication and perseverance through RevZilla’s ‘start-up’ years played a core role in developing the staff, which is known today as TeamZilla.
Before RevZilla, Patrick spent 5 years working with bicycles at Cadence Cycling where his passion quickly grew for all things two-wheeled. An avid traveler and adventurer, he has taken trips through Central and South America, the Middle East, and Africa including an ascent of Kilimanjaro. His longest ride (Philly to Chile) put him on a BMW F650GS through the Americas for over 3 months. Patrick’s most enjoyable US trips have been to Alaska, Central California, and New York around the Catskills and the Adirondacks.
Outside of work, Patrick enjoys playing golf as well as a variety of outdoor sports like climbing, hiking, and camping. His interests in photography, archeology, and history weave seamlessly into his diverse travels. If Picasa suddenly downgrades your storage space without warning, it is likely because Patrick has recently returned from a trip and has run out of space uploading 5,000 new pictures. One day, he hopes to be able to complete an around-the-world route via the infamous SiIk Road.
Favorite part of being on TeamZilla?: “I love the diversity of the team, riders or not, and the knowledge/experience that each person brings to TeamZilla. Each team member interacts so well with the other due to their unique personalities and the shared passion of the person sitting next to them. TeamZilla is our culture and I enjoy the time spent with everyone around me.”
