Patrick is a senior at the University of Southern Maine studying Cyber Security and Geographic Information Systems. While his studies may not particularly be in international trade, he has always had a deep fascination with other cultures. During the Spring 2020 semester, Patrick had the opportunity of living and studying abroad in Reykjavik, Iceland. It is there where he was able to interact with, and immerse himself into a new culture that was unlike his own. Now back home in Maine, Patrick is excited to assist local businesses in becoming more involved in the international community. When he is not at work or school, Patrick enjoys driving around the state looking for new places to hike and explore.
