Now, switching from the professional third-person voice to the real-life first-person voice…
I live in Westminster in colorful Colorado with my wife, Kellyn Pot’vin-Gorman, who is an enormously talented consulting member of technical staff at Oracle Corporation.
Prior to joining Oracle Corporation, Kellyn was an Oracle ACE Director, briefly making ours the only household in the world to boast two Oracle ACE Directors.
Kellyn is also a member of the Oak Table Network, making ours the second household with two Oak Table members. Kellyn has been a database administrator on Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL and she blogs as DBAKevlar.
I have two children, my son Peter and my daughter Marika, both of whom are adults on their own. I live with Kellyn and her daughter Caitlyn and her son Joshua. Kellyn’s son Sam lives on his own.
I’m on Facebook, but that I try to separate that for my personal life, and I do not “friend” professional acquaintances unless they have become part of my personal life. Instead, I’m glad to keep my professional contacts on LinkedIn.
For fun, in winter I snowboard the steeps and deeps, in summer I bicycle (road) long distances, and play squash in any season when I can find someone of like mind.
