Sean is a writer, editor, photographer, and marketing literato based out of Portland and Los Angeles. His early career began in the New York City trenches of magazine and web production, where he worked for publishers and websites including WebMD, Magnolia Pictures, and Stereogum. An MBA later, he’s served as a marketing director at an international payments software startup, Silicon Valley consultant, editor at Paste Magazine, and brand manager at Image Comics. He also likes to write and talk, with bylines at Playboy and The Atlantic and a podcast on NPR. In 2017, he wrote Art of Over the Garden Wall, an exploration of Patrick McHale's Emmy award-winning miniseries for Cartoon Network. Sean is writing his debut novel, The Lost Causes of North Broadway, slated for 2020, but he’s more than aware it’ll probably be 2021 as it looks like there will be another book he can’t talk about releasing before that. He’s currently a member of CoyDog Collective, a boutique creative agency that specializes in publicity, communications, design, and media.
He adores the following in no particular order: Neil Gaiman, Werckmeister Harmonies, Swiss design, Harvard Case Studies, ampersands, The Muppets, '70s leather jackets, Gotham typeface, Craig Thompson, Gattaca, autumn, Nada Surf, Markus Zusak, Double Fine Productions, and the way old paper smells.
