#GoodPeople: Bryan Mahoney
Our customers are extraordinary people. Here are their stories.
If Co-founder of Dynamo and SVP of Engineering at Glossier, Bryan Mahoney, could give a gift to anyone, as strange as it sounds, he’d give four legs that really work to his dog, Deigan. Deigan has lived almost his entire life with legs that have been broken and put back together more times than Bryan can count. “I want the last few years of his life to be filled with the kind of pain-free running and jumping that he deserves,” said Bryan.

When we asked Bryan what he’s most afraid of not getting the chance to do, he shared he can’t honestly say. “I am always thinking of the next five things I have to or want to do,” he elaborated. So it only made sense that if he had to pick a spirit animal, Bryan would be a horse. “Sort of high maintenance, likes to carry the load, hard-working, steady, and competitive,” he explained.
“I am always thinking of the next five things I have to or want to do.”
Up next, we were interested to learn more about Bryan’s favorite clothing. It turns out, though he hesitates to call it his most “prized” item, Bryan finds himself wearing his Glossier sweater a lot. “It was one thing to wear it in Montreal, no one really knew the brand there. But wearing it in NYC is another story all together,” he exclaimed.
The last time Bryan smiled so big it hurt was the other day, the day before that, and the day before that, too. “I like to smile,” he said, smiling. Speaking of things that make Bryan happy, we moved on to chat about music. While he wouldn’t call it dancing, when Bryan dances when no one is watching, there’s a good chance the soundtrack he’s listening to has a disproportionate amount of Pearl Jam.
“The entire experience (mostly because of her) has been so much better than I ever could have imagined.”
While it hasn’t impacted his taste in music, becoming a father has made Bryan think about things differently recently. Perhaps that’s why if he could tell the person he feels closest to right now, that he hasn’t yet, he’d let her know, “We’re raising the most incredible daughter, and the entire experience (mostly because of her) has been so much better than I ever could have imagined.” It also explains why the pre-2’s program at New York Kids brought him and one of his newest friends together.
We’re so glad to call Bryan a friend, too. Get to know more about Bryan, and keep in touch with him on Twitter.
