The 2016 election showed that our country is more divided than ever, and our two-party system constrains the people's will in ways both overt and subtle. I support the Common Sense Party in their mission to help weaken this duopoly and work towards a system where extremism is discouraged.


Originally from Oklahoma, Patrick currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and daughter. He has been an actuary for almost 20 years, helping to quantify and manage a variety of risks for organizations in both established and nascent sectors.

Patrick holds bachelor's degrees in both statistics and business administration from UC Berkeley. In his spare time, he helps to administer a bipartisan political discussion group, which has given him a greater appreciation for how people can disagree productively and respectfully.
