Patrick Weekes

Patrick Weekes was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and earned a BA and an MA in English literature from Stanford University. Patrick joined the BioWare writing team in Alberta, Canada, in 2005. Since then, he's worked on all three Mass Effect games, contributing to the creation of characters such as Mordin, Tali, and Samantha Traynor. He's presently working on the third game in the critically acclaimed Dragon Age series with the Dragon Age team. Tali's issue in Dark Horse Comics' Mass Effect: Homeworlds series and Dragon Age: Masked Empire are examples of tie-in fiction he's authored for both series.

Patrick, his wife Karin, his two Lego- and video-game-obsessed sons, and (now) nine rescued animals reside in Edmonton. He spends his free time making ludicrous Lego models, practicing Kenpo Karate, and embarrassing himself in video games.
