Patrick is C2G’s Client Program Manager. This entails wearing lots of different hats when aiding in the assessment of our client’s needs and how to provide resources fast and at a cost-effective rate. Anything from getting a resource from Point A to Point B, I have a hand in! Patrick also functions in the same capacity as a Production Assistant on a film set. Whatever is needed and however it needs to get done, he is there!

Previously, Patrick dabbled unenthusiastically in the world of freelance film production work and much more enthusiastically in retail management (a job he truly treasured) before being taken under the wing of Peggy and Sandi at C2G! To this day, most of Patrick’s “Professional Experience” came through the lens of C2G as an Intern, Analyst, Senior Analyst and unofficially Super Senior Analyst! Patrick earned a Bachelor of Arts in the School of Communications and Theatre from Temple University. Apparently, the school is no longer named that, but that is what is says on his degree. Patrick graduated Cum Laude.

Besides working for C2G, Patrick’s passion is music/sound design. If he is not reading about music or listening to it, then he is trying his hardest not to wake the neighbors playing it! Patrick’s dream is to make sounds that make people feel less bad about themselves and maybe have a laugh. Patrick is super fortunate to live with his best friends and favorite people in the world…his Mom and Dad. They reside in quiet Berkeley Heights, NJ.

What does “customer driven” mean to you?

Customer driven means willing to make things happen to please our customers by sometimes looking for unlikely methodologies, but always being solution driven. We truly want to provide excellent resources at a cost-effective rate. We take a lot of pride in the consultants we vet and place. Being customer driven not only means living and breathing my previous thoughts, but emanating them in all forms of customer contact.

What is best about being part of C2G?

The best part of C2G is working with the team…hands down…100%. We’re like a family here, and that makes it fun and exciting. You really lose all sense of ego and internal competition when you work together as a unit. We’re lean and mean!

What are your favorite ways to collaborate with clients and co-workers?

Sometimes finding those unlikely solutions, or the ones you never thought of, bring the most reward for the team. Thinking outside the box is my favorite part of collaborating with people. This usually is then used moving forward, or becomes part of the procedure. So, thinking outside the box to help the client/customers/consultants and then using our solution for the future is my favorite part of collaboration.

How do you drive results in your work?

I drive results in my work by collecting feedback from previous work. I am a big fan of ‘not reinventing the wheel’ if you do not have to but at the same time, I am always looking for improvement. This sentiment is usually easier said than done but when you work with people who share it, it is much easier to execute.

How do you build flexibility into your engagements?

I make myself available. If it is important to the team, it is important to me! At C2G we work really hard at making things happen, and I am glad to be a part of it. What you do and how you do it take different forms, but ‘making things happen’ is a constant.

What is something that most people do not know about you?

I have no secrets ha-ha! That said people usually do not notice the giant scar on my left thumb. I had a woodworking accident when I was 14. My thumb was caught in a lathe, of all things. 7 stitches later and I kept the thump and full mobility (still slightly numb).

What are you passionate about outside of work?

Hands down music/sound design/sound art/sound sculpture/sound culture. I am always thinking about this in some capacity. Any chance I have to put on some headphones or read about some world music, I take it! I also enjoy finding movies that time forgot about and re-visit them.
