Patrick was the founder of Ticket Tomato, responsible for every major client and the hiring of every developer that worked at Ticket Tomato prior to losing the company in a divorce in 2016. Up until that point the company grossed over fifty million dollars.
Patrick sold and setup every major client that exists on the current Ticket Tomato site other than Harefest and Vanport Jazz Festival starting with the Waterfront Blues Festival.
Promoter Peter Damman called Patrick to set up the Waterfront Blues Festival and the ticketing for the Festival 15 years ago. After Ticket Tomato got it’s first major client it needed a rebrand, and he reached out to Marc Anteparra Neujeuk who originally worked at Quango to see if they would partner with the company and they did and rebranded the website actually twice since Ticket Tomato’s beginning. Patrick setup meetings with Caffelli and the Food bank that eventually led into the relationship with the Waterfront Blues Festival.
Patrick was involved with the creation of every feature on Ticket Tomato from the scanning to the the accounting to the ticket itself (which has Caffelli on it). discounts, printing, boca printing, emailing of tickets, accounting, the promotional dashboard, customer service line and all things pertaining to the design .
Some other factoids.
Patrick created the Waterfront Blues Festival Facebook Fan Page
Patrick created the first Waterfront Blues Festival email list
Patrick created the customer service line for Ticket Tomato.
Patrick spent Thanksgivings and Christmases and all hours after hours answering calls and going after clients, stopping along the roadside answering customer service calls on the way to and after gigs making Ticket Tomato go.
Whether it is the Waterfront Blues Festival, the Winthrop Blues Festival , Portland Vintage Racing Festival, Jimmy Mak’s, Parade of Homes, Fashionxt (took me three years of coffee meetings to get) Jazz at the Oxford (this took Patrick three years to get as a client for ticketing), Guitars under the Stars, Mount Baker RandB Festival, In Concert For Cancer, Oregon Zoo temporarily, Patrick went after and every one of those clients and almost every major client and was successful getting a core curriculum of clientele.
Patrick created the relationship with Caffelli that started when his friend Marc Anteparra Naujock worked at Quango. Times were slow for the agency at the time and they agreed to help Patrick rebrand Ticket Tomato even working when the the budding ticketing company could not afford to do so.
Patrick reached out and sold nearly every major client that are on the existing Ticket Tomato site with exception of 5 that are there currently before losing the company in a divorce. Patrick now focuses his energy on music where his last three singles have made top five on US Billboard.

The Governors Ball
The Governor’s Ball was created when Patrick set a meeting with the best hotel he could think of in the city to create the Premiere New Year’s Eve event in the city 7 years ago. At the time the hotel was called the Governor Hotel and so was called “The Governor’s Ball”. The hotel name has since changed to “The Sentinel” but the name of the event has remained the same as the 4th floor ballroom has retained the name of “The Governor Ballroom”. Information and ticketing can be found at www.thegovernorsball.org for Portland’s Premiere New Year’s Eve event.
