Patrick Olp is Billings native who loves the community and the people in it. After graduating from Skyview in 2002, Patrick traveled to and lived in Maui, Hawaii, and then Uganda for a short period of time before returning to attend MSU-Billings. In his post college days, he has been a salesperson, concert promoter, bartender, server, barista, and almost everything in between. Married since 2008, Patrick and his wife welcomed a (perfect) new baby boy into the world in September. Patrick loves all of Billings, and specifically downtown Billings and everything it has to offer. He is a huge fan of the local restaurant scene, and loves nothing better than good friends, good food, good drink and a night of engaging conversation.
