Patrick Gallagher's Profile
I started welding in an old auto parts manufacturing facility in Brooklyn. I was intimidated.as hell, and the first thing anybody said to me is "you look totally lost."
I have no idea why I am utterly fascinated with metal work in all forms. It is the only thing in my life that has captured my attention for so long, and now that I am older with children and a pile of responsibility, it's the only thing that can make me lose all sense of time and myself.
It's my therapy for living in a world I don't always understand.
I have great dreams of focusing solely on metal work, but until then I continue to serve Active Duty in the US Coast Guard and keep my fire at a low burn until the day I am released into an inferno. I think about it constantly…
