Patrick Rosevear 罗思文
Beachheads Network Manager
New Zealand Trade and Enterprise
Patrick hails from Wellington, New Zealand, where he studied high school at Wellington College and completed a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from Victoria University of Wellington. A typical New Zealander, Patrick grew up surfing the wild south coast of Wellington and playing rugby and guitar in his spare time. After graduating and being admitted to the bar as a New Zealand barrister and solicitor in 2012, Patrick felt a calling, as so many young New Zealanders do, to spread his wings and fly away from the peace and natural beauty of New Zealand to experience new things, meet new people and experience new cultures. This longing for adventure led Patrick to Shanghai at the end of 2012 where he spent a year pursuing a men’s fashion venture and learning Chinese. The experience of learning Chinese and about new cultures fascinated Patrick and has spurred a deep passion for integrating language learning and the adventure of living abroad in both his professional and personal life.
Patrick gained a scholarship to study Chinese at Beijing Language & Culture University in 2014. During his study, he began co-hosting/hosting on Chinese television, filming over 200 episodes of talk shows, travel show and documentary content on CCTV, Tianjin TV and Beijing TV. In 2016 Patrick joined the trade arm of the New Zealand embassy (New Zealand Trade & Enterprise) where he assists New Zealand companies exporting to the China market.
