I grew up in Dublin, Ireland. I had a wonderful childhood there. For much of my teenage years and early twenties I was in the music business as an musician and songwriter. The band I was in had a lot of success. We released records and toured. It’s a tough business. However, my interest in technology and the opportunity to move to the United States changed my life’s trajectory. I still play and write music today, but most of my free time is pursuing other interests such as photography, educating, and writing.
