He was nominated for a Pulsar Award in the category of "Best Lead Actor in a Musical". In 2016, during his sophomore year in college, he landed the supporting role of Vince in the MSU made feature film called Sorta Late (2016). This was apart of a project called Theatre2Film. The film premiered at the Traverse City Film Festival in 2016. In 2017, Patrick landed some background work in Michael McCallum's short film Eskimo Brothers (2017), and Katheryn Bigelow's Detroit (2017). He also landed a role on the pilot for a sci-fi series called Electron Blade (2017-) playing the role of Sindricus. During this time, Patrick began filming Scapegoat (2018), playing the lead role of Matt, which premieres in September of 2018.

He has lended his voice for the SiN Studios produced video game Tuebor, as well as a short film called Letters (2018).

A 65-year-old woman and her 19-year-old granddaughter were arrested at a San Diego border crossing when authorities say they were trying to sneak 200 pounds of methamphetamine into the country. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers say it happened on January 19th, at about 12:40 p.m. The women, both U.S. citizens, were driving a 2006 Dodge Durango. A CBP canine team was roving through vehicle lanes when the canine alerted to the vehicle’s passenger-side door so the car was selected for further inspection. CBP officers later extracted and seized 299 packages of methamphetamine, weighing 219 pounds from the vehicle’s roof, doors, and quarter panels. The narcotics have an estimated street value of more than $416,000. CBP seized the vehicle and drugs. Both women were turned over to Homeland Security Investigation agents. It was unclear if they had lawyers who could speak on their behalf. (

There's a giant fish with a transparent head. The deepest levels of our oceans are some of the least explored areas of the planet. Because of the extreme pressure, cold, and dark at these depths, only the very strangest of creatures can survive there. These include giant tube worms, vampire squids, goblin sharks, and viperfish with teeth so long that they can't close their mouths. Perhaps the strangest, though, is the barreleye, a large fish with a completely transparent head.

Incensed that a Burger King employee would not honor a coupon he offered, an Iowa man first threw a cell phone at the worker and then climbed over the counter and struck the victim in the head with the phone, drawing blood. Cops say that 34-year-old Jeremiah Wenzel was arrested for assault causing bodily injury following a January 15th confrontation at a Burger King in Cedar Rapids. Wenzel is scheduled for an initial court hearing on the misdemeanor charge on February 5th. A Cedar Rapids Police Department spokesperson told TSG that Wenzel “allegedly attempted to use a coupon but the store didn’t honor it. He became upset and threw his phone” at the 43-year-old male employee. Wenzel, who fled after the attack, was subsequently arrested at his family’s Cedar Rapids home, which is three miles from the Burger King. (
