Sean is a writer, editor, photographer, and marketing/production professional based out of Portland. His early career began in the New York City trenches of magazine and web production, where he worked for publishers and websites including WebMD and Stereogum. He later served as a marketing communications director at an international payments startup, as well as a former editor at Paste Magazine with bylines at Playboy, The Atlantic, and a podcast co-host run at NPR/WOSU. He co-wrote Art of Over the Garden Wall with Patrick McHale for Dark Horse Comics, an exploration of the creator's Emmy award-winning miniseries for Cartoon Network. Sean is working on a novel due out in early 2019, but is more than aware that it will probably be 2020. He's currently the Brand Manager of Image Comics, producing video, podcasts, panel programming, and communications strategy for the independent comic publisher.
He adores the following in no particular order: Neil Gaiman, Werckmeister Harmonies, Swiss design, Harvard Case Studies, ampersands, The Muppets, '70s leather jackets, Craig Thompson, Gattaca, autumn, Nada Surf, The Book Thief and anything written by Markus Zusak, Double Fine Productions, and the way old paper smells.
