Patrick Byrnes – better known as Reachpat on Twitch – grew up in Massachusetts and moved to New York after graduating college with a degree in Chemical Engineering. While he works full-time as an engineer at a local manufacturing company, Patrick also maintains a full-time presence streaming games almost every night and hanging out with his community.
Outside of work, Patrick keeps his life adventurous and loves to try new things. Some of his favorite activities include ziplining, playing laser tag, and hiking with his dog – Patrick even rappelled down a 21-story building for charity! He also participates in charity campaigns all the time and raised over $2,000 between September 2020 and May 2021.
CELEBRATE EVERY DAY
Patrick discovered National Day Calendar back in high school when his mom bought him a holiday calendar for Christmas. Since then, he’s been spreading the word about all the fun holidays that come up with his friends and coworkers; they even have parties whenever there’s something food-related!
As his building’s self-proclaimed “Assistant Chief Morale Officer,” Patrick knows that it is important to show everyone that we appreciate all the work they do and have fun at work – what better way to do that than to #CelebrateEveryDay? He currently maintains a whiteboard in his office that he updates with upcoming holidays every week.
Patrick also posts about a new holiday every day on Twitter and Discord. It is a great way to interact with people that he doesn’t always get a chance to work with! Throughout his whole life, Patrick has always loved to spread kindness and positivity to everyone he meets. He has built his social media platforms on those principles, too. Patrick is so glad to share some holiday cheer every day! On his Twitch channel, he also shares that positivity and kindness by keeping a family-friendly community and playing games with anyone who wants to come by!
Tigers are some of his favorite animals so Patrick themed his channel around them. Naturally, his favorite holidays include World Tiger Day (7/29), World Kindness Day (11/13), and Apple Pie Day (5/13).
