Meet the Ninjaneers


Brian Mahoney

Brian is a consummate structural engineer, but his mind isn’t all steel and concrete. Just try to keep up with him on a bicycle, in a kayak, or over the river and through the woods cross country skiing, and you’ll realize that the man has many facets. Brian loves nothing better than a long day of hiking followed by some homemade Italian food, and he would feel totally at home cooking this gourmet meal himself.

He and his wife Cheryl live in Knoxville, where they celebrate the prospect of financial independence for their two boys, one a UT alum and the other a current student.
