Patrick Sweet

Post 5k SuccessI am an attorney at Sutton | Booker in Denver.

I earned my J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, along with a certificate in Constitutional Rights and Remedies.

Previously, I was the data analyst and news programmer for The News Journal in Delaware. I spent my days crunching numbers and building apps and data visualizations.

I'm a self-taught programmer. I began learning Python in my free time to help clean and analyze data for stories, and now I use it almost every day and have added PHP and JavaScript to my toolbox.

I grew up in Denver and went to j-school at the University of Missouri. I bleed blue and orange on Sundays and black and gold on Saturdays.

I started off my journalism career as a beat reporter then assistant city editor at the Columbia Missourian before heading to Wilkes-Barre, Pa. to report for the Citizens' Voice.
