Patrick leads our North East Studio Aveda Education team. Being a former high school art teacher, he believes that the foundation of a perfect hair style begins with understanding of the elements of design. During his career in the beauty industry he has been an Aveda salon owner for twenty years, an educator for several hair color brands, and a teacher and mentor to numerous stylists who have become very successful. He has studied with, and been mentored by Horst Rechelbacher, Yosh Toya, and Frederick Fekei. Patrick believes that change is so evident and important in the beauty industry; and is therefore constantly continuing his education.
