Patrick Nicholas Anders lives near Mount Shasta, California with his wife and four children. He studied architecture at the University of Detroit and is a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. As much an audiophile and musician as craftsman and designer, his northern California studio designs and builds innovative musical instruments and other works of functional art.
From 2006 until 2013 Patrick worked for the Mobius Megatar company as Shop Foreman and eventually as Production Manager. During this time he was responsible for all aspects of instrument production from raw lumber to finished instruments packed and shipped. He got to know the process pretty well, having personally built almost 250 Megatar instruments. In late 2013 the Megatar business was sold to Patrick and he began working on renovating and old barn into a new purpose built shop, redesigning the instruments and a creating a fresh image. In spring of 2014 the Megatar was reborn and production resumed on a small scale. In Late 2014 a new website was launched that began a new era for The Megatar as the instrument of choice for discerning touchstyle musicians around the world.
