Before moving to Puerto Vallarta, Seattle-native Patrick Harrison spent over 20 years successfully marketing a vast array of shows and products around the globe.

Having fallen in love with Vallarta on a trip celebrating his first anniversary with his partner in 1988, Patrick knew that Puerto Vallarta would one day be their home. In 2003, they finally decided it was time to "make the move to the sun" by selling everything that would not fit in a 10-foot trailer. They traded in their convertible for an SUV, hooked-up the trailer and made the drive south.
Drawing on his experience in design, entertainment, media, retail and sports marketing, Patrick opened his own successful firm here in Vallarta - P. Gringo Marketing & PR - which targets the English-speaking tourist and local communities.
Between managing his ever-growing and diverse client list, leading press conferences, organizing launch parties and writing press releases, Patrick's business keeps him very busy. He hopes that the Seattle rust will eventually disappear. Patrick can be reached by emailing patrick(at)pgringo.com.
