Hello! My name is Barry Vince and I am taking my first crack at blogging, so please bear with me. I plan on sharing my experiences as a Southern California family man and business owner weekly. Today I will introduce myself and give you a little background. In future weeks, I will focus mostly on cool technical things that tie into my out of the office interests. I hope somebody finds this remotely interesting!
I’m a co-owner of Two Roads, the tech staffing firm in Surf City, USA, whose website you’re currently visiting. A couple of us leaped from a big corporate firm to chase our dreams 20+ years ago and start 2Roads. We supply high tech folks to really exciting companies in the space exploration, defense and aerospace industry. I have lots of cool stories and insight to share about my job – looking forward to it.
On the personal side, I am a 51 year old husband, father of two cool kids and a trouble-making 2 year old chocolate lab, Rey. I was born in and still live in Belmont Shore in Long Beach, CA. My family is extremely active in athletics and community service in the local area; I will definitely be sharing lots of stuff about that. I’ve completed 5 full Ironman and a whole bunch of half Ironmans and other triathlons — as well as way too many marathons and running races across the world.
I’m stoked to have the Rams back in L.A. Love the Lakers, King and Dodgers – No Orange County teams for me! I have a passion for Formula One racing and celebrated my 50th birthday with a bunch of friends at the Monaco Grand Prix. Bummed about the Packers and Steelers (and the two-team parlay I had riding on them), but that’s sports. Enough of me for now.
