Patrick Delahanty is perhaps best known as the creator of AnimeCons.com, the largest source for anime convention information on the Internet, and its sister site, FanCons.com. He is also the founder and host of The Chibi Project where he is responsible for experiments on anime toys.
Patrick is big fan of conventions. He has attended more than 100 of them and is one of the founders of both Anime Boston and Providence Anime Conference. He has hosted his popular improv event, Anime Unscripted, more than 40 times at more than a dozen different conventions in two countries and four time zones.
On April 22, 2013, he started working at TWiT as a Web/Digital Engineer. This was revealed by Leo after the March 17th episode of TWiT, the day before Patrick gave his notice at Monster.com. Fortunately, nobody at Monster watches TWiT (or follows any tech news, really... Sad.)
