Systm is the Do It Yourself show designed for the common geek who wants to quickly and easily learn how to dive into the latest and hottest tech projects. We will help you avoid pitfalls and get your project up and running fast.
When he's not changing diapers, watching movies or sitting next to a cactus somewhere in the desert waiting to fuel or repair an off road race truck, Patrick is probably testing products or building projects for Systm and Tekzilla.
He's written hundreds of product reviews for the likes of PCMag, Cnet, PC World, CPU and TechTV, launched the online video and podcast group at Ziff Davis where he produced and hosted 188 episodes of DL.TV (and learned more about Flash dev, routing tables, Content Delivery Networks, compression tools, RSS feeds, log file analysis and traffic verification than he ever thought he'd need to know) and started using computers back in the late CP/M early DOS days.
He's best known for answering tough tech questions, skewering products and beating dead PCs with a sledgehammer for the four years at TechTV when he hosted a live daily television show called The Screen Savers.

I grew up on the rough side of the farm just outside of Louisville, KY where the cows travel in packs and the spotted b/w cows were know for malicious acts against humanity and cowmanity. After running away from the thug life of the farm I headed down south to Savannah, GA to attend an art school to escape my past as a broadcast engineer. After graduating from the art school the past had caught up with me and i was drawn into the dark underworld of engineering once again. With no hopes of running away from my past and escaping the stigma of a technical lifestyle I looked for an out where i could easily express my gentle nature while secretly applying my technical knowledge in order to make financial accomidations.
