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, Seattle for the last 30 years, he treasures exploring and experiencing all that the beautiful PNW has to share.  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 and hair-raising 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 and business.  After launching offices in Dubai, UAE and Riyadh, KSA Sean returned home to Seattle in 2010 to focus his attention on working with larger consulting firms and clients.  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: UHG, Optum, Takeda, J&J, Seagen, Cigna, Anthem, Humana & BD.  Many great relationships, lessons, challenges and successes have resulted from this rich and incredible journey.

Yes, an incredible journey it continues to be...for, at his core, Sean is a Lifelong learner driven to listen, empathize, connect and understand as we work together to face big challenges, solving big problems.
