Meet Patrick Sandiford

Maintenance Team Member

Know Your Pelicans

As a member of the Maintenance team, what do you do for Packer?

The Maintenance team's ultimate goal is to provide a clean and safe campus for the Packer community.

As part of the team, I'm on security duty from my first step onto Packer's property, and I'll do whatever it takes within my power to help keep Packer safe.

Being a person who doesn't care for daytime darkness, I take great pride in looking after the lights on the entire campus.

I also fix the clocks and lockers, and contribute to the everyday running of the campus in too many ways to mention. I do whatever is required.

What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?

I first heard of Bob Marley and the Wailers at around the tender age of six years old. I was so in love with their vibes that I wanted to look like them. My parents were not impressed with me not wanting to comb my hair, but my friends loved it and nicknamed me Rasta, which has stuck with me ever since.

What's one thing you like about your colleagues?

Leaving the comforts of home is never an easy thing to do. But knowing that my day will be filled with humor, no matter how hard the task may be, is very satisfying. I thank my colleagues for that.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

I wish I had the power to completely erase negative thoughts from everyone's minds. Negative thoughts lead to unhappiness, sadness, jealousy, war, and all things not good for the soul. Let the good vibes flow!
