Patrick Moore is dedicated to an old school pursuit of the sporting life. He enjoys breaking a sweat in competitive activities such as golf, sailing, ultimate frisbee, clay pigeon shooting, and volleyball. A bit of a lug in the kitchen, he otherwise has become quite the smoothie maker (Mango tahini!).
Patrick is in the midst of obtaining his degree from Wichita State University, and also works as a staff writer at WomensFocus Magazine in Wichita, KS. A guitar player for over a decade, he believes everyone should take at least 30 minutes a day to thoughtfully listen to music. He loves pro/college basketball and football but just doesn't "get" baseball.
However, he is looking forward to having a catch with his his son, just as soon as his beautiful girlfriend lets him out of the oven.
