Patrick de Freitas

Patrick de Freitas owned and operated Waking Owl Books, a bookstore just west of the University of Utah for 22 years. He’s also been very involved in the initiation and startup of several organizations including three philanthropic foundations, a summer-stock theater company, an archival and record keeping service, a citywide volunteer tree care program, and a biotechnology company. Patrick was born and raised in England and, for reasons that are sometimes unclear to him, lives in Salt Lake City.
