Personal Life

Outside of the office, Sean dedicates his time to his two daughters, shepherding them to various activities. In his free time, he enjoys playing bridge, golf, cycling (Peloton and the real thing), and trying to finish the New York Times crossword (only the early weekdays!). If Sean weren’t in finance, he would love to work for a company trying to bring back commercial supersonic air travel.
