Sean was raised in the Gulf Coast plains of Texas and earned a BS in computer science at Sam Houston State University. He then moved to Colorado with dreams of high-country bikepacking trips and found it, followed shortly by ski touring in the winter. At Democracy Works, Sean works on TurboVote and Ballot Scout, but he mostly enjoys building simple tools that amplify their wielders. Prior to joining Democracy Works, he worked with the American Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network to build and deploy an EMR system for use in hospitals nationwide. He's also helped develop trading analysis systems, been a systems administrator, and learned the art of dishwashing the day before Valentine’s Day. At the moment, he's learning about tree skiing, the planning of his wedding, brewing saison and cider, and reading the weather from the clouds.
