Born 18 November 1973 in Freehold, NJ (better known as the birthplace of Bruce Springsteen) to Elaine Brennan and Thomas Sullivan. Left the hospital and went to the family home in Marlboro, NJ on Thanksgiving Day. My older sister Barbara (born 1970) has referred to me as a turkey ever since.
Moved to Stamford, CT.
Began attending the Italian Center Nursery School.
Graduated from the Italian Center Nursery School and started Kindergarten at Davenport Ridge Elementary School.
Visited Ireland for the first time on a ten-day family vacation in September. Places visited include Dublin, Galway, and Donegal. Vacation only slightly marred by stomach flu which infected each member of family in turn.
A peronal annus horribilis. On the night before my first communion, a gas leak started a fire that gutted the core of my house, and as a result the whole family spent an unpleasant summer living in hotels. In the fall, I transfered to St. Cecilia's Elementary School for the beginning of three miserable years. Later in the autumn, my parents permanently seperated and divorced the following year.
Aboard the U.S.S. Constitution, April 1980

I graduated from St. Cecilia's and moved on to St. Gabriel's Junior High School. At the same time my mother, sister, and I moved to a new home in another part of Stamford. Life began to look better

The space shuttle Challenger exploded on liftoff in January. Later the same year, my favorite baseball team the New York Mets won the World Series. Both these events had a big impact on me at the time. I was growing up and starting to find my place in world events.

I graduated from St. Gabriel's and moved on to High School at St. Mary's in Greenwich, CT. Among other activities, I participated in the yearbook staff, eventually becoming co-editor, and started four years of playing on the boys' basketball team.

In one busy, yet exciting summer, I spent a lot of time away from home at yearbook and basketball camps in Rhode Island, and at Georgetown University's Summer School for High School Seniors.

In April, my father died at the age of 45 from complications related to Multiple Sclerosis. A month later I delivered the salutitorian address at my high school commencement ceremonies. Graduation was bittersweet, as it turned out to be the last one for St. Mary's High School which merged with two other schools to form Trinity Catholic High School in Stamford. That summer I left my home of 15 years and moved with my family to Williamsburg, VA. In the fall, I began my collegiate studies at The College of William & Mary.

Participated in a summer field school in historical archaeology in Bermuda, excavating an early 17th-century fort on Castle Island.

Started my first real job this summer working in admissions sales at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitors Center. Eventually would work at Colonial Williamsburg for four years, one in admission sales, and three as a costumed historical interpreter in the historic buildings. Little did I know at the time that this also would be the year I'd meet my wife-to-be Susan.

Graduated from William & Mary and panicked frequently about what to do with my life.

Attended the wedding of my mother to R. Wayne Carlton of Williamsburg.

Served as Man of Honor to my sister as she wed Woody Coates.

Took my dream vacation, traveling solo for six weeks through Ireland, Scotland, and England with a side trip to Paris. Later in the year, I quit my job and moved back to north to Somerville, MA.

After a year and a half of temping, I found permanent work in a new career: libraries! I started my first library assistant job as access coordinator at Baker Library at Harvard Business School. I would move into my current Interlibrary Loan / Document Delivery position at the beginning of 2002. Also this year, I participated in my second Boston to New York AIDSRide. The first was marred by a hurricane, but this year I completed the 275 mile ride and more importantly helped raise thousands of dollars for AIDS charities.

Started my graduate studies at Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science. My first nephew Cassidy Sullivan Coates was born in September.

Susan and I are engaged to be married on sunny November day in Boston's Public Garden. Two days later I turned thirty. Where did all the time go?

I make my first ever web page and include a very long and boring timeline of my life.
