Associate Director of Communications & Marketing
Patrick joins the department after spending more than 10 years in the newspaper industry. As the associate director of communications, he will serve as the managing editor of Texas Tech Today and as a university spokesperson.
Patrick graduated from Texas Tech in 2000 with a degree in print journalism, and while on campus also spent two years on the staff of The University Daily. He began his career with the Abilene Reporter-News before returning home to work for the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal for six years. He spent the last 3 ½ years working for The Detroit News but, once again, found his way back home.
A Slaton native, Patrick and his wife, Rita, have a 1-year-old son, Andrew Jacob (AJ). Patrick enjoys spending time with his family — which now includes eating his mother's home-cooked meals — listening to all types of music, reading, playing golf and pridefully reminiscing about all the Detroit winters he survived.
