About Patrick Perrault

Patrick is a Staff Writer for TechRaptor and has been gaming on every console he could get since he could hold a controller. He’s been writing for nearly as long, with his first written work of note a five-page short-story on time machines at the age of ten. As a freelance writer, he’s also working on eventually publishing his own Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Historical Fiction novels.

Patrick started at TechRaptor back in October 2014. After nearly eight years he’s still there and still writing, moving from reviews and the occasional article to joining and writing for the TechRaptor News Team exclusively. In the meantime, he’s earned a Bachelor of Honours in English, Cultural Studies, and History from McMaster University, and has also earned a Creative Writing Certificate from the University of Toronto to further improve his writing skills.

If he’s not writing or playing video games you can find him playing hockey, golf, or cracking open a book and getting lost in another world.
