Hello, my name is Patrick! I was born on August 15th, 2000 in Worcester MA. I have lived in Boylston for my entire life and am currently attending the Mass Academy of Math and Science at WPI in Worcester, MA. I have two brothers, Andrew (18) and Jeffrey (13). Andrew is currently attending the Hartt School of Music and is planning to major in jazz studies. Jeffrey is in 8th grade at my sending school, Tahanto. My mom is originally from East Brunswick, New Jersey and my dad is from Penn Yan, New York. We have a dog, Koa, and a cat, Leporello. I have four aunts, two uncles, and ten cousins with my furthest relative living in Salzburg, Austria! One of my grandmothers lives in Henderson, New York while my other two grandparents live in East Brunswick, New Jersey. I am lucky to have such a great family that is an important part of my life.
One of my favorite things to do is travel with my family. In just the past two years we have visited four National Parks, a National Monument, a National Historic Landmark, and a National Seashore. These have ranged from the cliffs of Point Reyes to the geysers at Yellowstone. Check out the website for Yellowstone here! The National Parks were my first love and only the town of Jackson Wyoming has made given me that feeling of pure excitement just by being there. Every time I have gone to these places I am accompanied by my family. Whether it is skiing with my dad, hiking with my brothers or biking with my mom, we are always finding ways to get outside.
Another hobby of mine that keeps me outside is soccer. I have played it for so long that I can’t remember a time that I didn’t play soccer. I have played for my town team, my middle school team, my high school team, and my club team, BEST FC. I am an outside midfielder and occasionally play goalkeeper when no one else is willing to. I played JV soccer for eighth grade, freshman year, and sophomore year at Tahanto Regional High School, but unfortunately I am not able to play this year. However, I am currently planning to play my senior year.
