An avid adventurer, Sean left college early to travel the world with an entrepreneur and with every step wanted to see more. In 2008 he went to South Africa on a shoe drop and then traveled north, ultimately ending up in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There he learned of our world’s deadliest war. In response he wrote a small journal called Falling Whistles and sent it to about 80 friends and family. They forwarded it around the world and he woke up to thousands of emails asking – what can we do?
Sean and his friends launched a campaign for peace in Congo. 4 years later Falling Whistles has invested in 8 Congolese visionaries rebuilding their communities, and is building a coalition for peace. He continues to push the boundaries of adventure and dreams of a free world. These topics are inevitably intertwined in his writing, speaking and conversations.
