- NAME: Pat
- AGE: 17
- LOCATION: Gulf Breeze
- HOMETOWN: Pensacola
- Currently enrolled at Gulf Breeze High School
- I'm still in the process of determining where I will attend college. FSU is looking more and more likely.
I'm very interested in international, national, and local economics and politics. I've had an interest in video production from a young age (probably around 8 or 9 years old), starting out just playing with a video camera, and then moving on to simple linear editing on a home PC, to getting a good handle on Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, and working with high end consumer/prosumer cameras, and finally to my current job working as a crew member at WSRE. I just bought a Canon XL1S and I plan on using it to make more video projects of my own. I've also been interested in developing content on the web for sometime, and I currently operate/help to operate four .com's. I'm interested in learning to play a musical instrument, I just haven't found one I like all too much, the next instrument I'm hoping to try will be the keyboard or piano. I've also recently taken up an interest in Urban Planning and specifically traditional neighborhoods and New Urbanism. It was partly because of this interest that I began an internship working at the Community Redevelopment Agency at the City of Pensacola. I also chose to intern with the City because of my interest in local politics.
- As far as music goes, I like mostly alternative stuff. I don't like "emo", pop punk, pop rap, or pop country.
- I like to ride my bike as much as possible around the city of Gulf Breeze.
- For a good part of my life I've had the now-and-then interest of becoming a licensed pilot.
- I'm generally interested in local politics first and foremost, and national and international second, although it depends on the issue in every case.
 Future Career Aspirations and Thoughts
I have no idea what career path I'm going to choose. I have a wide range of interests, likes, and dislikes. So far, I know that I do not enjoy working at grocery stores, I like working at a TV Station, the idea of entrepreneurship is extremely interesting to me, and I know that whatever I do I want to be able to affect people's lives in a positive way.
