Director BIO: Patrick Hickman (ON THE ROCKS)

Born in Darby, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, Patrick is the youngest of four children. He fell in love with movies as a child, with heavy influences from adventure films like “The Lord of The Rings” series, Gladiator, and “Indiana Jones” series. Reciting monologues back to his friends, he would watch films over and over until he knew every line. Growing in a blue collar town, dreams of pursuing acting went to the side, as he went to school for several different careers including electrician and accounting instead, before finally deciding to pursue acting. He started his training at the Actors Center in Philadelphia with teacher Larry Jansen and manager Ken Jansen. Patrick was also heavily influenced by actors/teachers Bryan Fox and Pete Postiglione in Philadelphia. After working on over a dozen projects, including: films, commercials, music videos, and stage work in Philadelphia, Patrick decided to move to LA. Since being in LA full time, he has trained with actor/teacher Thom Rivera at Elizabeth Mestnik Acting School, and William Burns, who was taught by Lee Strasburg. Starring in numerous films including the lead role of Vincent Greenlee, in the feature film “Ribbons”, also starring Brian Krause, and the Sci-Fi Pilot “Runners”, he has also added directing under is belt. His love for TV & film adds its his aspirations of being a great Actor/Director.
