Public Affairs


Patrick being filmed by Josh Grabenstein for the Rock Paper Classics Shakespeare Collection Kickstarter project feature video.

I co-founded a micro-publishing startup called Rock Paper Books in 2014 along with David Mautz. We republish classic books that feature cover art from modern artists we curate from social media. We leverage crowdfunding platforms like to fund many of our new offerings. We’re members of in Washington, DC. You can follow us on Instagram to see our latest products and concepts. I’m interested in meeting talented artists, designers, editors, educational partners, and indie authors and would love to hear from you.

I’m working on some other ventures and collaborations that I’ll be sharing soon.
