Patrick Renie is a developer at Paizo Inc. and lives in Seattle, Washington.


Patrick was raised in Gig Harbor, Washington, and studied at Western Washington University, where he received a BA in creative writing. He hired on as an editorial intern at Paizo Publishing, LLC in spring of 2010 and began freelance writing for Pathfinder products shortly thereafter. His first monster, the dweomercat, was published in Pathfinder Adventure Path #36.

In July 2011, Paizo hired him as a developer with his work focused primarily on Player Companion and Campaign Setting product lines.

In early 2012, Patrick helped direct the relaunch of the Player Companion line with both F. Wesley Schneider and James L. Sutter, transitioning the previously bimonthly line to a monthly schedule and redesigning numerous aspects of the line and its products.

In October 2014, Patrick left Paizo to become a copywriter at DigiPen,[1] but remained an active freelance author and community member.

Four years later in November 2018, Patrick returned to Paizo as a developer after a sabbatical on a farm in Hawaii.[2]
