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 and Stereogum. He later served as a marketing communications director at an international payments 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, The Atlantic, and a podcast run at NPR/WOSU. 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.

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.
