Raised in the urban wilderness of Chicago, Illinois Sean fell in love with the outdoors and the little tracts of forest where he could play. Attending the University of Tennessee he received a Bachelors degree 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 since 2005. Starting in 2009 he became a Wilderness Ranger based out of Juneau, Alaska. As a steward of the land patrolling areas by kayak his team monitors, educates and aids research in four separate Wilderness Areas. The majority of the work is conducted in Tracy Arm Fords Terror Wilderness, a glacial fjord system that encompasses 653,179 acres.
Sean enjoys working in wild and remote landscapes and this is his sixith season in the Antarctic. The combination of the mountains, glaciers, ocean and sharing these wild places with wonderful people is what he strives for.
