A Bit About Sean

Personally, Sean love's to travel with his family experiencing cultures, communities and the diverse beauty of our world.  He enjoys the outdoors, skiing, boating, cycling, and hiking.  With the Pacific Northwest as his home, he treasures exploring and experiencing all that the beautiful PNW has to offer.  He and his wife have been blessed to be able to have visited many countries around the world with London and NYC as some of their favorite cities.  However, Sean has also visited many wonderful and remote locations including a few exciting experiences in places like Kabul, Afghanistan; Central Saudi Arabia and Legos, Nigeria, to name a few. 

Professionally, Sean is a Passionate explorer of new and innovative approaches to help people connect, build rich experiences, remove barriers and expand businesses.  In the early 2000's, Sean was developing global markets and focusing on innovative technology solutions for healthcare, education, high-tech and power & energy.  After launching offices in Dubai, UAE and Riyadh, KSA Sean returned home to Seattle in 2010 to joining Strong-Bridge and Slalom Consulting.  Since 2011, Sean has been fortunate enough to work and partner together with some amazing clients including: Amazon, Microsoft, HTC, T-Mobile, eBay, Cisco, Webex, Facebook/Meta, HP and Brooks Running as well as many wonderful Health, Life Science and Medical Devise companies like: United Healthcare Group, Optum, Takeda, J&J, Seagen (formerly Seattle Genetics), Cigna, Anthem, Humana & BD (Becton Dickinson).  Many great relationships, lessons, challenges and successes have resulted from this rich and incredible journey.

Sean is a lifelong learner driven to listen, empathize, connect and understand as we work together to face big challenges, solving big problems.
