In addition to this work, Pat is also known for his product marketing and has been hired by elite fitness professionals and sports coaches (including coaches that are, or were, in the NFL, MLB, NHL and the Olympics) to direct their online marketing campaigns.

Pat married Janet Pailes Beith ('91), and welcomed their first child, Donovan Kingston, this year. The Beith family lives in the area, and appreciates the North Attleboro community of teachers, students, coaches, athletes and residents. According to Patrick, in this community "everyone looks out for each other, genuinely pulls for you to succeed, and comes together during tragedy. I have seen it countless times and continue to be amazed watching the community's support of each other."
