The majority of his time has been spent as a Wilderness Ranger based out of Juneau, Alaska monitoring and educating others on 4 separate Wilderness Areas totaling 1,793,783 acres . The majority of his work is done in Tracy Arm Fords Terror Wilderness area that a glacial fjord system with the primary mode of travel by Kayak.
During the N. Hemisphere Winter Season Sean Ski Patrolled for 5 winters at a local ski area in Juneau, AK but now focuses his time to guiding in the Antarctic and is currently on his fifth season. The combination of the mountains, ice, snow, and ocean while sharing these wild places with wonderful people is what he strives for.
