My Profile

Patrick Svoboda
Hey, I'm an energetic, adventure seeking, creative and an in general curious traveller. I point the lens of my Canon towards everything that inspires me. During my time at college and university I dipped my toes into computer science. I am a non-smoker, proactive, dynamic and organized. If you’d ask my friends, they’d tell you that it never get’s boring with me. I believe that our failures are our greatest teachers. That is why I embrace ever mistake I make.
