He has a very high (95%) success rate over the past 10+ years and is often recruited by manufacturers in the video conferencing space to write grants for their clients. He also performs his own research and manages the entire process through submission, greatly reducing the burden on his clients staff.

His understanding of the high-tech industry and target customer base is a strong skill that allows him to easily bridge the gap between functionality and technology.

Pat often ghost writes blogs for companies that do not have the resources, time or expertise, yet want to create a presence through social media. He likes to focus on how technology influences our lives and affects user workflow, with an emphasis on the Education, Healthcare and Enterprise marketplace.
