Raised in the urban wilderness of Chicago, Illinois Sean fell in love with the outdoors and the little tracts of trees where he could play. Attending University of Tennessee he received a Bachelors in Forestry along with a minor in Wildlife and Fisheries.
Upon graduation Sean traveled to Alaska and has been working with the US Forest Service for 9 seasons. The past 5 seasons have been as a Wilderness Ranger based out of Juneau, Alaska monitoring, learning and educating 4 separate Wilderness Areas. The majority of the work is done in Tracy Arm Fords Terror Wilderness; a glacial fjord system where the primary mode of travel is by Kayak. For the past 5 winters Sean has been on Ski Patrol at a local ski area in Juneau, AK.
Sean loves the combination of the mountains and the sea and sharing these things with wonderful people is what he strives for.
