Hey, I'm Patrick! I specialize in reading for commercials, TV comedies, and theatre.
I have a background in Shakespeare and work as a Shakespeare coach, and I f$%^ing love working with actors! Got some Shakespeare sides, a new monologue, a difficult dialect (my specialties include RP, Northern English, Standard Irish, and Northern Irish), or a commercial audition you're working on? Get in touch with me for coaching!
I'm increasing my reader rates in 2023, but aiming to keep things budget-friendly. Free Friday Reader services available! Gratefully accepting tips via Venmo (@dfwpadraig).
Glad to work with you on whatever you need help with!
