Patrick studied at Webster University in St. Louis, MO, where he recently returned to teach a course in music theory. He moved to NYC in 1998, had a few successes in acting ("Strangers with Candy" and "A Beautiful Mind") and then transitioned to music direction. The piano lessons finally paid off as he traveled the country teaching scores of scores and leading pit orchestras. Patrick's life took a definite turn for the better when he quit smoking cigarettes and took up solving crosswords in the summer of 2004. He saw his first puzzle published in the New York Times on July 21, 2005 (a Thursday). He has since written about 50 puzzles for the Times, and his work has also appeared in places like the New York Sun, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Games magazine, the LA Times, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. In his spare time, Patrick can be found letterboxing or playing frisbee with his dog-ter, Penny. www.patrickblindauer.com
