As a young kid growing up in South Central Los Angeles, Mista Pat was fascinated with science and technology. As an adult, he was inspired by his 4-year-old son, Logan, to co-found a company called Kids That Code, Inc. in San Bernardino, California that teaches young children computer programming and other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) related subjects. He realized that underrepresented and underprivileged children were fascinated with technology but not participating in the technology revolution. Mista Pat says “they can’t be what they can’t see!” To that end, Mista Pat is dedicated to inspire young children to one day become the amazing people who will create the companies, products, and services that are changing our world.
