Sam O’Reilly

Position: Owner, Samurai AV Pty Ltd

How do you introduce yourself at parties?
Samurai – nothing more, nothing less.

Do you think that mathematicians deserve the “geek” tag?
It really depends if they like it. I know a lot of people that find ‘Geeks’ super sexy.

How do you use maths in your business?
I use mathematics in most areas. My AV installation work requires Pythagoras for speaker placement, my electronics servicing needs OHMs law and my day to day accounting, basic multiplication and division.

What has maths done for you lately?
I stayed up very late one night calculating how to fit 60 pieces of staging, 620 chairs and a whole heaps of AV equipment into a 40 foot shipping container. People said it wouldn’t work. I made it work. With mms to spare.

Do you have a favourite application or theory of maths?   And if you do, why is it so? 
Pythagoras. It gets me out of trouble when I need it.
