Patrick is a Senior Software Engineer in the Space & Defense industry. He is avid on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science which he is currently using to solve engineering problems. He has been on the board with the marketing team for the past two years.  He found that the non-profit organization can better serve the community by utilizing and learning from the copious amounts of data available through social media platforms and attendees at events. His goal as Chair of IT in 2019 is to build a centralized web app where all board members can learn from their respective programs through data.

APEX has helped Patrick grow personally and professionally through all of professional development programs, networking events, and board retreats over the past couple of years. He believes the organization helps those who move to Los Angeles after college get a sense of community outside of the weekly work grind while also giving back to those in need.
