JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) cites Catholic New York and Gatens, Brian [MC1982]


Dear John,

The March 19. 2015 Edition of Catholic New York, at page 26, has an article.
about the JASPERS making the NCAA National Championship for the Second time in
a row.

The article ends with the following:
“The Jaspers are making their eighth overall appearance in the tournament and will
be rooted on by Jaspers fans from past and present.

Brian Gatens, class of 1992, told CNY that the energy and enthusiasm is special at
Manhattan and the party atmosphere of Selection Sunday brings him back to when
he was a student.

‘My best memories are Manhattan College,’ he said. ‘I loved going here. I loved being
part of the tradition of Manhattan College. It is great to be with everybody and be on
campus and see what is happening here. I’m looking forward to the first game and to
the second game we are going to play in the tournament.”

Tell me about your early life; where did you grow up?

I grew up in New York City in a working-class family. I went to Manhattan College in New York City majoring in psychology, and that was really about wanting to know what makes people tick and what drives human nature and motivation. I was really interested in psychology and philosophy and was otherwise not the most attentive student. I went into sales and found myself really struggling to have any passion around the product I was selling. I noticed a lot of companies were buying these things called word processors, and that was really transforming the secretary’s productivity. Before the PC was born and came into being around 1982, I started to get into computers.
