Originally from Rochester, NY, Sean grew up playing in the snowy hills of the Finger Lakes. Eventually he wanted more than icy, man-made ski trails and infrequent snowstorms. Alaska Pacific University's Outdoor Recreation program drew Sean to Anchorage but the beautiful mountains, unbelievable snow totals, and warm community kept him around. After graduating with a BA in Outdoor Studies concentrating in Snow Science, Sean moved to Girdwood, seeking a better stage for ritual dances, prayers, and offerings for the snow gods. When he’s not looking for powder, Sean works for the Alaska Mountaineering School as an ice climbing guide and Nova River Runners as a raft guide.
