Sean earned a BA from Appalachian State University and then spent the next few years as a counsellor and a social worker. He then spent four years in the U.S. Air Force and was deployed with the Army to Mosul in 2006. After getting out of the Air Force, he went to work for the Army, where he earned a Master's degree in Strategic Intelligence. He is a member of both the ACLU and the NAACP as well as a Unitarian Universalist. This dichotomy means that at work, he is regarded as a liberal, whereas at church, he is seen as conservative. This experience has shown him that we have more in common than we have that separates us. Additionally, it has shown him that we have more power when we work together, and that the problems we face are not as insurmountable as they appear.
He's now trying his hand at being an author as a means of healing the divides between us, with the goal of working towards a more just society.
The book Coming Together provides hope and an action plan for us to work together and fix many of the problems in our country.
The U.S. used to provide affordable healthcare, and education. Our people supported workers’ rights. We used to invest in our people. We are being told that we can’t do those things, and gaslit into thinking that the crippling healthcare and educational debt being forced upon is our fault.
Too many times we have used fear to dehumanize people because of the color of their skin, or sexual preference.
Many of our politicians gain tremendous wealth and power by keeping us divided and hopeless.
We have fought hard to conquer these problems before, and we can do it again. We can work together towards a more honest and just society. We can repair the damage done to our society from the lies we have been told.
Recognizing the power within you does not diminish mine.
The more socially responsible we are, the more individual freedom we can enjoy.
