Jeff is Fíonta's designated “out of the box” thinker—and can be counted on to come up with a minimum of three alternatives to any idea. He enjoys going to the movies with his two sons, is a walking wine encyclopedia, and loves to drink young red wine and drive his motorcycle (but not at the same time).
