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 unfinished stockroom space with no heat or air conditioning. 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 five 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 more than three months. Patrick’s most enjoyable U.S. trips have been to Alaska, central California and around the Catskills and the Adirondacks of New York.

Outside of work, Patrick enjoys playing golf, as well as a variety of outdoor sports, such as 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 Silk Road.

Favorite part of being on TeamZilla: “I love the diversity of our staff, riders or not, and the knowledge/experience that each person brings to TeamZilla. Their unique personalities and the shared passion of the person sitting next to them create a workplace environment that is unmatched. TeamZilla is our culture and I enjoy the time spent with everyone around me.”
