 Patrick Bentle

My Background: I grew up in both St. Louis, Missouri and Toledo, Ohio. I graduated from the University of Toledo in 2001 with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree in Finance and a second Bachelor’s in Business Administration degree in Information Systems. After that I was an Associate for Booz Allen Hamilton and primarily did consulting work for the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

Career Path: I chose to get an MBA to switch careers into the real estate development field. In this light, my concentrations here at KFBS will be in real estate and sustainable enterprise. I hope to get an internship and eventually a full-time job with a smaller real estate development firm that is committed to redeveloping inner city or downtown areas by employing excellent architectural design, solid city planning ideas, and sustainable/green development principles.

Interests/Hobbies: I enjoy doing all things outdoors, but particularly enjoy running, skiing, and camping. I enjoy reading and particularly like to learn about art and architecture. I also enjoy doing volunteer work.
