Co-CEO / Founder
Bryant, like all Millennials, wanted to make the world a better place through his profession. He thought of becoming an attorney at first, but after a brief stint working in a legal office after undergrad, he quickly realized it wasn't anything like Law and Order.
However, what it did provide was the opportunity for Bryant to understand that what he enjoyed most about law: helping people resolve their issues.
So he enrolled in a Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Master's program at Columbia University, did pro bono work as a Mediator for a U.S. federal agency, and quickly realized that the job he wanted (one that offered the ability to empower others in resolving their issues) wasn't out there. So he set out to create it, knowing that his skills in negotiation and conflict resolution were badly needed.
Patrick Courtnage’s journey was not spawned by an invading warrior tribe from the north nor a mysterious clue hidden in Egyptian hieroglyphics. Rather, it began with his conviction to find his own definite purpose and to help others on the way to finding theirs. Patrick has used his passion to find the pinnacle at which the cloud embodied with his support can help a business find its definite purpose. Human needs extend beyond the strictly physical. Patrick inherently saw that business could be a source of balance and liberation in one’s life and not simply a means to a well-patched roof or soft-boiled quail eggs.
Some of Patrick’s other passions include dancing West Coast Swing to pretty much anything with a beat, appreciating a porter microbrew, and running in search of Zen-like focus. He also had a 3-year stint in Hollywood working on movie visual effects for films The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Tron: Legacy. He has worked in the tax and finance industry for the last four years, and holds an Associates of Science degree in Accounting from Santa Monica College. He is also a co-founder of the Alaskan guiding company, Adventure Flow.
