Patrick began his career at a young age working with Peter Jackson. He danced in one of Peter’s New York productions for four years. During that time, Patrick had the opportunity to learn all of the technical aspects of producing, such as lighting, special effects, and sound. Patrick then debuted and performed in his own show at the Eden Roc Hotel, in Miami.
After returning to New York, he assisted Peter with the pre-production of “Playboy Fantasy” at the Playboy Hotel in Atlantic City. Later he became the technical director with the show at The Rainbow Grill, in New York, while simultaneously producing “Abracadabra” an “award winning show” in Atlantic City, at the Atlantis Hotel.

Patrick and Peter relocated to Las Vegas in 1988 where they produced Abracadabra, at the Aladdin Hotel & Casino.
In 1990 Peter and Patrick created “King Arthur’s Tournament” for the Excalibur Hotel & Casino” which ran successfully for eight years.
