Patrick Scharf

At seventeen years of age, this job at Catching Clouds is Patrick’s first. He is currently a freshman at Colorado School of Mines. The eldest child of the founders of Catching Clouds, Patrick was lucky to get the job without a formal background check.

Patrick has a very unique sense of humor in line with his hobbies involving breaking the fourth wall, math jokes, deja vu jokes, paradoxes, geometry jokes, obscurity jokes, telling everyone within earshot to switch to the dozenal system, deja vu jokes, referring to himself in the third person, use of the paren (singular of parentheses), and of course, ironically bad jokes. Patrick loves incorporating comedy and science into everything he does, no matter how much the people around him groan. For example, rather than being a normal bio, this mishmash of text is actually one big joke, with so many layers of irony that it’s difficult to tell what’s serious and what isn’t. I mean, look at that picture. A peace sign? Really? And that dumb grin. It’s all ironic, of course.

Patrick is very happy to be learning what he can about ecommerce, entrepreneurship, accounting technology, and business as he simultaneously dives into his math and/or computer science major in college.
