It was not long began playing bass and guitar semi-professionally while finishing high school. At 19 he landed a touring gig with an Italian pop band, Delta Landa, with whom he traveled the world for five years. He then moved to Ivory Coast, Africa where he performed pop and musette music with a local band. In 1984, Patrick decided to follow his dream to study jazz in America. He enrolled in the Musician’s Institute where he honed his jazz guitar skills from the likes of Joe Di’Orio and Scott Henderson. Simultaneously he studied composition and arranging at the Dick Groove School of Music. He graduated with special mention from the Institute in ’85.

With Peter’s encouragement, Patrick moved to San Diego where he has lived for the past two decades.
