Pat Romano is a stunt coordinator, rigger and performer with over 30 years of experience. He is the founder and owner of the stunt rigging company Romano Stunt Rentals, leading the industry with cutting edge equipment, innovative techniques, and a team of trusted professionals seen in over 2000 commercials and more than 400 television shows and features.
Pat got his start in the industry with his bicycle riding expertise as a member of the BMX Action Trick Team, the first and most famous of all the freestyle teams that would spring up across the globe in the 1980’s performing many shows across North America and their Summer tours. Romano introduced the fixed gear and fork pegs to BMX and pioneered tricks such as “the boomerang”.
After a few years or working as a stuntman, Hal Needham gave Pat his big break as stunt coordinator on the film Rad (1986) about a BMX racing star. Pat has since gone on to coordinate hundreds of films, television shows, commercials and music videos.
In 2009 Pat won a Screen Actors Guild Award in the category Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series for his work on Heroes. The same year he received a SAG Award nomination in the same category for his work on Prison Break.
Pat has been the president of Romano Rentals for over 30 years and served a six year term as president of Stunts Unlimited from 2012-2018.
