Sean grew up in Colorado where he fell in love with the mountains. After working in a dendrochronology (tree-ring) lab in college, he began his teaching career in a windowless classroom in Houston, TX, with Teach for America. He found a new passion in working with youth and after seeing first-hand the benefits of taking his students outside to learn, Sean entered the informal science education field as a Graduate Fellow for the Walking Mountains Science School in Avon, Colorado.

Sean has a MS Degree from Colorado State University and a BS in Environmental Biology from Montana State University and has been overseeing educational projects for Sierra Nevada Journeys since 2009.
