It was at this point that he attracted the attention of gaming industry giant Hasbro and joined the team. Today, when Patrick isn’t building welcoming communities for Hasbro’s customers he can be found hosting Kickstarters for nostalgic board games or playing guitar and singing sad lyrics to his favorite pop punk songs.
