I'm Irish born and raised, have lived in SF about 20yrs and sorry I
don’t have one of those “cute accents” unless I’m talking to my
family or I’ve had a beer too many which doesn’t happen too
Most of my friends would describe me as smart, funny, reliable,
sarcastic and athletic. I would describe myself as complex and
funny. I have lived in the US almost as long as I lived in Ireland
and I do feel very luck to know that my home is San Francisco.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend a lot of time outside, most weekend you will find me in the
Mountains, sailing on the bay or out enjoying the trails and back
roads of the bay area. When I’m in the city I like to spend time in
my neighborhood at some local spots or running around the city
looking for new fun places to eat, listen to cool music or just
On the career side I manage a large team of engineers and we get to
solve really complex and interesting problem. I very much enjoy my
work but I am a typical in my industry in that it does not define
who I am.
I’m really good at
Solving complex problems, building teams, mediating, coaching and
my favorite I am pretty good at racing sail boats.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my sense of humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
My, friends, my bikes, all wheel drive, San Francisco, the ocean
and the mountains.
On the materialistic side:
Good wine, good food, showers, city life, DVR's, REI
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to help people, not in a Mother Teresa way but in practical
ways for the people I work with and my friends and family.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends having dinner or in the Subi on the road
to a weekend of fun in the great outdoors. Occasionally just
relaxing at home watching whatever the DVR decided I need to watch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not on a public web site
