Andre Patterson is a technologist by trade, but a multi-faceted entrepreneur at heart and in practice. He grew up in Plano and moved to Austin and attended the University of Texas to obtain a BBA in Management Information Systems. He ascended through the ranks to become an architect for one of the largest eCommerce websites in the world, then moved over to high tech software sales. The conception of XscapePain began about five years ago when he and his family were introduced to a groundbreaking technology that addresses the biochemical effects of aging, with the ultimate goal of biohacking the human body to live longer. This knowledge was further expanded when being introduced to Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMt) also known as Red Light Therapy.
