What I’m Up To Now

Last updated: 26 September 2018

Boards and committees:

  • Sherburne County Economic Advisory Committee
  • DFL State Central Committee Delegate
  • CD6 DFL Director
  • Sherburne County DFL Director
  • DFL Precinct Chair (Big Lake City P3)

If your start-up or non-profit board needs an experienced Fortune 100 alum / tech MBA who is not afraid to speak his mind, please get in touch. On the non-profit side, I generally spend my time with those addressing economic justice, seeking to reduce poverty and improve/fund public education.

Professional Life:

  • Cloud Engineering Practice Director at the Nerdery, helping companies embrace cloud first and DevOps mentalities
  • Mentoring others, helping them reach their goals - you can request career advice from me on LinkedIn

Personal Life:

  • Spending time with my three kids; being there for them at their extracurricular activities as much as I can
  • Trying to fix up the house to get it ready to sell this spring
  • Househunting south of the Twin Cities, since Ireland still isn’t working out
  • Occasionally responding to Feeney Genealogy Project requests for help and updating my own tree

Side Projects:

  • Keeping Student Loan Bill Tracker up to date and advocating for solutions, political and business, to the crisis
  • I took this year off, but every other year or so I advise senior or junior projects for my undergraduate alma mater

How I prioritize all this:

In evaluating adding things to my life, I try to gauge its impact on:

  1. My health and wellbeing
  2. My family
  3. Existing side projects and my career

Ideally it’s something that I - and others - are passionate about and naturally improves the above.

Things I want to do:

  • Relocate to Ireland
  • Get out from under the indentured servitude of student loans
  • Run for state office
  • Learn to play guitar
  • Learn to speak Gaeilge
  • Visit the Johnson Space Center in Houston
  • Visit Jungfrau Park and its inspirations like the pyramids of Egypt, Easter Island, Incan ruins at Cusco and Machu Picchu, Mayan ruins at Teotihuacán and Chichen Itza
  • Fill in my National Parks Passport with places like Mesa Verde, Yellowstone, and Arches
  • Take the family camping & stargazing in a dark sky area
  • Spend more time in Italy, maybe Rome
  • More canoeing, maybe up at the boundary waters
  • Caving / spelunking
  • Vacation somewhere with warm, clear, blue water

Is there anything I can help you do? Get in touch.
