Pat as an individual

If you weren’t an accountant what would you like to be: Most likely a Publican. I would like to run a pub where sport was a focus – lots of big screens to capture the action, and a place that had a really fun and social atmosphere.

Outside of work: I really enjoy spending time with my wife Marie and our boys, who are 15 and 10. The boys love their sport and one of my favourite things to do is to watch them play both club and school footy. I am a keen (but admittedly erratic) golfer. Unfortunately my improvement is limited by my other competing passions, including football, horse racing (I have bred horse races for 10 or so years now), social drinks and spending quality time with my family and friends.  I recently completed the New York Marathon, which was a big achievement for me (in hind-sight I may prepare for it better next time!). In general I’m pretty adventurous and enjoy pushing myself to the limit and doing things that I’ve never done before.
