Patrice has Swiss heritage and a passport from the country, but he was born in Indonesia and lived in southeast Asia until he was 19. He has lived in Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, Dubai, Vietnam, Canada, and Switzerland. He has settled in Iceland for the time being. He decided to be a guide because he didn’t think he would enjoy working in an office. Plus, the outdoors is special, and he believes we should appreciate it while it is still here. 2016 was his first season and he really enjoyed it. He hopes to work with more of the training programs in order to gain more experience.
