When the weather is nice you can find him working in the vegetable garden or trying to finagle his way onto a Golf Digest Top 100 course (he aspires to play them all). During the dormant winter months, Sean and his wife enjoy skiing, snow shoeing with their dog Kona, and traveling to warmer waters for scuba diving and spearfishing.
