About me

I am married to Jennifer since February 2017. I am originally from Macroom in Cork. I am an uncle to my beautiful niece Aoife. My hobbies include Soccer (supporting, playing and coaching), Fitness, DIY, Travel and Scuba Diving. I am a volunteer with Special Olympics Ireland, and also have been helping on STEM activities with various institutes across Ireland. Most recent involvement were in Robotics to Schools programs and building a program to tutor maths to school students in University College Cork.
Whilst my job is technology, I love what I do. I have been fascinated with how technology impacts our lives since I was a child taking apart RC cars. During my career, I always looked for mentorship from business and technology leaders, and I also help the younger generation by mentoring and “sending the elevator back”. I contirbute to the technology comunnity by advising, consulting, writing and also speaking at international conferences.
Fun Fact – I spent a number of years before moving to Limerick as a part time freelance sports journalist with the Evening Echo newspaper in Cork.

The event was BT young Scientist, the theme was “Transformation”. For my company at the time EMC, I donned the spandex to be “Blue Flash” 🙂 (I kept my job)
