We met in Buffalo, NY in early 2013 and immediately fell in love. Patrick also fell for Lindsay’s two pugs. In 2015, we relocated to Ohio for Lindsay’s job opportunity with her company’s headquarters. We bought a home between Akron and Cleveland and could not have been happier with our decision. We love our neighborhood, the friends we’ve made, and all the fun activities nearby. Additionally, Patrick landed a fulfilling job as an executive for a nearby company. Shortly after settling into our home and neighborhood, we got engaged, and married in early 2017. Friends and family describe us as a perfect match. We have great, open communication that helps to form a relationship built on trust and respect. We are fun-loving, outgoing, and sincere. We spend our time exploring different events in the community with friends, hiking with the dogs, or taking trips to visit family and friends. During the summer, we enjoy spending time on our patio or going taking trips to the pool or beach.

Patrick is one of four children – he has an older sister and brother, and one younger sister. He grew up with his siblings, mother, and step-father in Buffalo, NY. Patrick has a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master’s degree in business. He worked in the banking industry throughout college, and until moving to Ohio in 2015. Currently, Patrick is a finance executive for the real estate department of a global company. Patrick enjoys staying in-shape through regular CrossFit sessions, following professional and college sports teams, riding his bike, playing basketball and flag football, playing with the pugs, and spending time with family and friends. Lindsay describes Patrick as caring, complimentary, trustworthy, kind, respectful, witty, fun, intelligent, and determined.

Lindsay was born and raised in the Poconos, PA. She grew up as an only child with her parents in a rural town about an hour and a half from Manhattan. Lindsay also remains close with her half-brother and family who she met for the first time 9 years ago. Her hobbies include gardening, decorating, traveling, attending plays, concerts, and festivals, and spending time with family and friends. Lindsay has a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in international relations. Lindsay is an HR Manager and has been working for the same Fortune 200 company for the last 7 years. Her career has led her from Pennsylvania to Oklahoma, New York, and Ohio. Prior to her current company, Lindsay was a ABC News anchor in Oklahoma. Patrick describes Lindsay as kind, encouraging, positive, generous, organized, smart, ambitious, independent, and strong-willed.

We own a two-story colonial home in a safe and quiet neighborhood between Akron and Cleveland. Our four-bedroom home leaves plenty of room for our family and friends to visit and we’re certain grandparents will be here often. Our neighborhood has community playgrounds, sidewalks, and many children and pets playing outside. We also chose this area for the great school district. Our town has activities for children, including a recreation center, pool, library, and public square with great events. We are close to restaurants, shopping, and other attractions. We love this area and plan to call this home for a long time, if not forever.
