Although originally from the Chicagoland area, Sean grew up with a strong passion for the outdoors. Every summer he and his family would pack the camper and hit the road for a month of exploration. At a young age, he fell in love with the mountains and all the activities that they offered. In college, Sean was introduced to trail maintenance through service projects restoring portage trails in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. In 2016, he graduated from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL with a B.A. in Community Recreation and Park Resources. A lack of mountains and an eagerness to ski led Sean to Colorado in 2015 where he worked in Vail for two years as a tour guide and ski instructor. More recently, he has worked for the U.S. Forest Service-Holy Cross Ranger District as the Adopt-A-Trail Ranger and the National Sports Center for the Disabled as an adaptive ski instructor. Now entering his fourth year with HTA, Sean's role as the Field Manager is always expanding and growing. From managing the Field Projects in the summer to grooming winter use routes, he hopes to see you out on any one of the beautiful trails Grand County has to offer. When he is not out on the trails, Sean can be found riding his mountain bike, shredding the POW on the ski hill, or on the river in his kayak.
