Author, And A Highly Acclaimed Comedic Entertainer.
Patrick’s fourth book, Bursting, takes you on an inspiring journey to the heart of your life. It includes many of Patrick’s renowned stories plus many more.
“You’ll laugh and you’ll cry reading this short-story masterpiece”
Patrick is a top-rated, widely known keynote speaker and thought leader on passion, possibility, and heart-based business. Patrick has shared stories and strategies from his journey with millions of people around the globe for almost 25 years.
Patrick is known by many companies and organizations as “The best speaker we’ve ever had,” and by many theatre-goers as a “Master storyteller” and a “Brilliant Performer.”
The odds were stacked against him making any sort of name for himself. He was raised by a single mom who made less than enough to make ends meet. He was born into a family tree where no one had ever gone to college. Most challenging though was that he lacked the money, experience and connections most would presume you need to do what he bravely dreamed.
Today, he is one of the only people in the world to have accomplished both a Hall of Fame speaking career and a global, smash-hit, one man theatre show. Add to that that Patrick is a four time author with more than 150,000 copies of his books sold and you have a person who has overcome the odds and demonstrated what’s possible when you lead your life with heart, passion and purpose.
The Chosen Speaker of More than 1,500 Organizations.
Patrick has delivered inspiring and impactful
keynotes to more than 1 million people.

The Day That Changed My Life Forever
I was 22, walking to work in San Francisco, when I came upon a woman laying on the sidewalk, pregnant, alone, and begging strangers for help.
No one is stopping because they’re too busy or because she is homeless.
She asks me to call for an ambulance so I do. But before it arrives,
With my own two hands, I deliver her baby right there on the sidewalk!
It left me overflowing with exhilaration and joy.
It also forever changed my path.
I discovered two things that unexpected morning. First, that helping others as what we’re all here to do.
And, that I wanted to be a part of the solution, not the problems.
My “sidewalk baby delivery” made national news. It even landed me on The Late Show. It was the first story I shared with the world.
Since that remarkable experience, I’ve been blessed to share many stories with millions of people, but “Student Sidewalk Doctor” is my most treasured because it gave me the gift of knowing my purpose.
