Patrick was an Innovation Designer here at Shift until February 2019, working primarily on our food venture and Historypin's Storybox. He plays a key part in bringing new products and services to life by rigorously prototyping, testing and iterating pilot ventures to ensure they are having their intended social impact, are appreciated by users and can generate sustainable revenue.
Patrick joined us in 2018 after completing his MA in Innovation Management which focused on how design and business methodologies converge to foster positive social change. Before his master's Patrick spent 9 years as the co-founder and Creative Director of a successful consumer product brand where he gained experience in product design, marketing and commercial strategy. His designs are part of the permanent collections at SFMOMA and Vignelli Center for Design Studies, as well as the MoMA Store collaborative collection in New York.
Patrick likes to run as far as he can, mostly so he can eat as much as he can shortly afterwards and has recently taken up tailoring.
