Trail Resources Manager
Sean grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee and took advantage of the incredible natural resources of the region by hiking, backpacking, and kayaking from a young age. These experiences coupled with an extremely outdoorsy family fostered a connection with the natural world and particularly the southern Appalachian mountains.
