He is a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston (2007) and was selected to attend the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2009.
In 2013, Patrick scored his first feature films, including Bends directed by Flora Lau, which had its premiere as part of the official selection for 'Un Certain Regard' at the Cannes International Film Festival where the music was praised in Variety: "Sparse dialogue and haunting music lend an alienating effect; other craft contributions are also excellent." Patrick went on to receive a nomination for 'Best Original Film Score' for Bends at the Taipei Golden Horse Awards 2013.
Most recently, he composed music for feature documentary Virunga directed by Orlando von Einsiedel which had its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival 2014 as part of the World Documentary Competition selection.
