Shane grew up in Athlone, Co. Roscommon and earned a BA in computer science and an MSc in artificial intelligence from Trinity College Dublin, where he was elected a scholar of the university. He came to the U.S. in 1997 and says, “Being part of the Irish community in New York makes one very aware of what it means to be Irish, and the positive influence Irish people and culture have on the local and global community. To be Irish here means you can tap into the vast reserves of goodwill built up by generations that have come before. I am proud to be an active member of the community and continue that tradition, and look to serve it in whatever way
I can.”
