Over the last 15 years his focus and emphasis has been on providing professional consulting and development services in the IPAM industry to large Enterprise firms. In 2012, Patrick joined Wells Fargo & Co. as the technical lead for the DDI Engineering team where he provided design, architecture, and engineering work to the firm to lead its 6.4M dollar DDI reengineering project.
