John O'Brien


Still discovering who I am at 52. I’m a father of 4 children ages 23, 22, 6 and 2 so I’m guaranteed to be current with music and technology well into my 70’s.   I’m the youngest of six from Philadelphia (I’m a big all Philly Sports fan).  I live in CT.  

My oldest kids got me involved in FV as they went the distance through all the villages, CIT and counselors.   I’m a data, research and experience driven decision maker (part of my engineering background).  I’m been told that I’m difficult, annoying, outspoken, demanding but weirdly empathetic.   I’m always looking for the unintended consequences of all decisions making.   I believe we have a world oddly full of black swans.
