Pat is a fourth generation carpenter, having worked in the field for over 30 years. Pat grew up in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with his family (he is one of seven children). He has vivid memories of
playing with his father's carpentry tools and always wanting to follow his father’s line of work.
Pat apprenticed under numerous master carpenters from a very early age, learning the art of
cabinetry making. He also continued to take numerous classes in various types of carpentry.
