I’ve learned most of what I know from fail­ure, and luck­i­ly I’ve had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to fail quite a bit and learn through those experiences!

Get the right people, set the right direction, move with velocity & make shit happen.

Patrick brings a breadth of experience to GRAYBOX, from being an entrepreneur, consultant, startup exec, and multiple time co-founder. He brings a passion for growth to everything he does, working closely with his client partners to plan and execute strategic initiatives to grow their businesses. He loves building, leading, and coaching high-impact teams—teams that consistently fight and win above their weight class.

Patrick has worked with numerous companies, from D2C brands like Birchbox—and partnering with some of the leaders in omnichannel and ecommerce to grow their commerce businesses, including Zumiez, Rejuvenation (Williams-Sonoma), Ingram-Micro, Yakima Racks & Adidas.

As a startup executive and co-founder, Patrick worked in multiple Go-To-Market roles on venture-backed teams in the enterprise software, AI, ML, data science, and computer vision spaces.

Beyond GRAYBOX, Patrick is married, has two teenagers, and lives in NE Portland. He loves spending time with his family, hiking, white water rafting, and exploring the PNW. Patrick is actively involved in the Portland tech community and mentoring/advising startups.

Patrick is excited to bring his experience from strategy, merchandising, marketing, technology, ux, and digital design in working with the GRAYBOX team and our client partners.


I jumped off cliffs in Northern Morocco into the Mediterranean Sea. The cliffs were about 40 feet above the ocean—but you could see straight to the bottom of the ocean, about 25 feet, the water was so clear.
