Hi, I'm Pat!
In addition to owning Horse Power Productions, a large part of my business has always come from my freelance work within larger production companies and advertising agencies. I pride myself in having the combination of high-level technical skills coupled with a communication prowess which allow me to work effectively with all clients, regardless of their level of technical expertise.
Essentially, I handle all the nerdy technical details. Then I’m able to explain it to a CEO, or Project Leader, in plain English, giving them the knowledge they need to complete their project without weighing them down with all of the technical jargon. Typically my clients find this most appealing about me, as I’m often able to be a one-man band for technical installs, equipment troubleshooting, and field productions, saving my employers additional staff and money.
My freelancing schedule is extremely flexible for my clients convenience. I can work at your office, your clients office, my office, or anywhere in-between. Just let me know what you need, and we can work out the arrangement that suits you best. Thanks so much for your consideration and I look forward to working with you!

Unfortunately, putting my phone number & email address here has led to lots of spoofing and spamming in the past. Suffice it to say, if you've made it this far, you already know how to get in touch with me.
Come on people, this is why we can't have nice things!
