Head 'Honcho' - Island in a Bottle
His senior year in high school, young Quashi left all he knew and went to live in Hawaii to surf and chase his dreams. From there it was off to live and teach in Costa Rica until his loving parents said ``come home, or you are on your own buddy!`` After college and getting his BS degree in Bio Health Sciences, he spent 8 years running a clinic in San Diego. After making more money making surfboards than he did at his day job, he quit and his entrepreneurial spirit was fully engaged.
From there, Patrick went on to earn an Executive MBA (International Business with a added specialty in Finance) at the Florida Atlantic University’s Executive MBA School of Business. Patrick also has completed coursework and gained his certificate to sit for the Certified Financial Planner designation. After another 10 years of working for banks such as Morgan Stanley, and Insurance firm Northwestern Mutual, and working as a Sr. Analyst, its clear that his past work history has given him the background to know various aspects of business and his passion for Caribbean culture tops it all off.
Patrick started his first business at the
age of 16, making surfboards in his
parents garage and glassing them out
on the front lawn. He turned Quashi into a
global surf and clothing brand with surfers
from 12 countries riding his boards on his team.
Patrick focused most of his early days
helping to support & build the now famous Jamaican surfing empire.
Big Bus Studios
