Dave in the MFA courtyard with a Great Dane statue

Greetings. My name is Dave. I used to race bicycles for fun. I still like to ride, mostly on the road. To earn a living I do analysis, planning, and reporting related to Cloud Finance (Finops), for a company with a SaaS offering in the EHR/medical software space. My wheelhouse is detailed analysis of enterprise scale Google Cloud Platform billing and cloud asset tracking with BigQuery. I went to college at night when I was in my thirties, graduating from UMass Lowell with a BS in Information Systems at the tender age of 42.

I also work as a volunteer researcher, database administrator and digital archivist for the Stoughton Historical Society.

For professional purposes you can find me on the dreaded LinkedIn

I had a lot of help for which I will forever remain grateful.

To show gratitude, the least I can do is try to entertain you!

I mow my own lawn and cut my own hair...

Pushups with Eiric!
OK, my physical condition has declined somewhat since the making of this video in 2019-ish, but my fans need content. Leave a comment if you would like more. I'll just have to lose 30 pounds first.

Lord, you don't know the shape I'm in!Out on the tiles
The pandemic life took a toll on your hero.

First day on the job
But then it was time to head back to the office...

All this by hand. Only took 2 years.
I do my own stunts, and dig my own stumps too.

Dave Foley on crossresults.com I raced cyclocross for a long time. I was never successful.

Dave Foley on road-results.com On the road I've done a little better. 2018 was a good year. Unfortunately the New England amateur bicycle road racing scene has been eroded pretty badly. We had a good run, and I feel fortunate to have enjoyed the golden years.

Proof that I could still pedal a bicycle as recently as 2021. With the Cronoman.

Other Dave Foleys - Since I live in relative obscurity, perhaps you are looking for someone else...
