In the second grade Patrick found a dinosaur bone behind his house! This led him to study geology. After becoming a Christian, he reevaluated his evolutionary beliefs from training in secular geology, and is now a young-earth creationist. Patrick teaches classes and seminars, speaks, writes, and leads geology field trips. His non-profit corporation, Northwest Treasures, creates geology kits and curricula for all ages. He also opened Geology Learning Center, a museum/educational center in the Seattle area.
