Patrick McMenamin is an Executive Producer at BuzzFeed News, helping to launch and showrun their Twitter morning show AMtoDM. Before joining BuzzFeed, he helped launch HuffPost Live and was a producer at ABC News and Fox Business. He’s also written a series of historical thrillers with his Dad and they are still miraculously on speaking terms. At the University of Rochester, he played the role of Achilles in Todd Theatre's ambitious two part adaptation of The Iliad and he learned how to smoke unfiltered cigarettes playing Happy Loman in Death of a Salesman, but did not pick up the habit thanks to his castmates who would not let him.
