Sean grew up in Austin, TX where he developed an unlikely love for rock climbing at the ripe old age of 9. After spending most of his time at the gyms and limestone crags around his home, he started to set his sights on bigger objectives. Summer trips to Colorado fueled his passion for the mountains until he lit out on his own and headed west. He has been guiding and instructing all over the US but recently landed more permanently in Seattle. Outside of climbing, Sean teaches and enjoys creative writing, music, and fly fishing. Sean is currently an AMGA Assistant Rock Guide, Apprentice Alpine Guide, Ice Instructor, and a Single Pitch Instructor.
