Sean graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in recreation, parks, and tourism management and much of his life has been spent outdoors. In addition to his personal outdoor experience, he grew up in the Scouts and while in college, he took full advantage of his school’s resources, spending lots of time with the outdoor adventures program and nature center. After college, he did a year of outdoor education and a year of challenge course directing.
Sean was attracted to Open Sky for the professionalism and intention behind Open Sky’s programming. He also appreciations the holistic and somatic elements of the program and the attention to family systems therapy. What Sean values most about his role as a field guide is the indefinite amount of personal growth that goes along with the position and the opportunity to help students with their personal development. His greatest strength within a guide team is his strong sense of community. He also excels at building rapport and group facilitation.
During his time off, Sean loves and values outdoor activities. He likes to climb, bike, ski, and golf. When indoors, he loves to cook, read, play video games, and watch films.
