He has led student groups on academic trips to study environmental issues in China, glaciers in Alaska, wetlands in northern Canada, and cultural history in England.

His interests include traveling, hockey, auto racing, and reading non-fiction books on history, travel, and culture. He lives in Greystones, County Wicklow, Ireland with wife Catherine, young son Greyson, and their two adorable dachshunds, Adder and Neely.
