Sean serves in a cross-functional capacity at the community foundation – blending social impact with elements of business analysis and marketing. In his role, Sean is involved with designing, refining and positioning the community foundation's suite of tailored service offerings for philanthropists, corporations and other foundations seeking deeper levels of engagement and support for their social impact work. He tracks industry trends and customer feedback, collaborates with team members to drive the delivery of services and leads regular cost and price analysis of the various offerings.
Sean graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor of science in sociology and a professional certification in nonprofit management. His previous experience includes community relations and research for arts organizations, churches, food shelters, his alma mater (BYU) and even Nike – performing ethnographic research to design concepts for sustainable products. His community engagement background largely informs the approach he takes with his personal philanthropy.
A Silicon Valley native, Sean really enjoys running along Stanford campus, writing science fiction short stories, staying caught-up on Netflix and singing in the Silicon Valley Gay Men’s Chorus.
