Sean found his way to Seattle after the distinct opportunity to determine that it is the best place to live, provided by a childhood of moving around in the Navy and experiencing the different corners of the USA and the world.
He loves Seattle for its unique offering of the great outdoors, culture, and people, which allow him to get his fix of skiing, road biking, climbing, and home-brewing, and further, to be part of communities that enjoy the same things. Sean also travels the world at every opportunity he gets, a bug likely planted by his Navy childhood.
As a means to give back not only money, but his time and expertise, to the environment and people that have made Seattle such a great place to live, Sean joined SVP as a Partner. His background consists of an education in biology and environmental studies (B.S. from the University of Washington) and a career in strategic business analytics at a startup (Wetpaint) for the last 5 years. He hopes to bring his unique combination of start-up business experience and education in ecology and the environment to be of particular help to our environmentally-focused grantees.
Outside of Wetpaint and SVP, Sean is involved in the Seattle community as a coach for the North Seattle Lacrosse boys youth teams and a business advisor with Washington CASH.
Sean was introduced to SVP by Partner Chris Barrows, and looks forward to meeting and working with other Partners and the grantees of SVP Seattle!
