    Occupation:
    Sports Reporter for The Natchez Democrat
    I had accepted a position as the Sports Reporter at the Natchez Democrat on Aug. 26, 2019. I have liked it ever since and I have taken various pictures and wrote various stories for the newspaper as well.
    One of my favorite stories I have written for The Natchez Democrat was about a local high school in our coverage area winning the Louisiana High School Athletics Association Class 2A state championship.

    Also, as a Sports Reporter, I'm also in charge of the page layout of the two Sports pages.

    In my spare time nowadays, I enjoy enjoys playing competitive pool in the American Poolplayers Association in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (located an hour and 30 minutes away on Sundays), reading the latest stories from across the nation via the AP Wire, playing with my aging cat named Petey and playing sports video games on the Playstation 4.

    In the past, I had enjoyed an internship with The Shelbyville News in Shelbyville, Indiana. With this internship. I had begun to craft my work by working on various stories and taking various photos. The Sports Editor, Kristopher Mills, is very pleased with me and the internship. With TSN, I wrote sports features ranging from girls gymnastics to midget car racing. What I enjoyed about the internship was that I could cover a wide variety of sports, without feeling obligated to just a few sports.

    In college, I worked for The Ball State Daily News in Muncie, Indiana. I went to school at Ball State University and graduated in May 2019. With the Daily News, I covered the women's and men's swim and dive, men's and women's tennis and numerous photos of each. With the Daily News, I received coaching from numerous Sports Editors. I enjoyed the Daily News by covering sports that weren't mainstream sports. But sports that people can enjoy as well.

    In his free time, Patrick enjoys playing competitive pool, reading, playing with his cat (Petey) and spending time with his family.
