Sean is a writer, editor, photographer, and marketing literato 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 an editor at Paste Magazine with bylines at Playboy, The Atlantic, and a podcast co-host run at NPR/WOSU. In 2017, he co-wrote Art of Over the Garden Wall, an exploration of Patrick McHale's Emmy award-winning miniseries for Cartoon Network. Sean is working on a debut novel due out in early 2019, but is more than aware that it will probably be 2020. Though it's spooky and sad and features many monsters, it will hopefully make everyone feel a little bit more human.
Sean is currently the Brand Manager of Image Comics, producing magazines, videos, podcasts, panel programming, and communication strategy for the independent comic publisher. It's a wonderful place that spins wonderful dreams.
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.
