A fourth-generation Irish American with roots in Dublin on both sides of the family and ancestors from Kilkenny on his mother’s side, he says, “My family is from Boston where the Irish are still very active. I am proud to be a descendant of the Irish community that both built the city infrastructure and shaped its local culture. It is that work ethic and sense of purpose that I carry with me every day.”
