About Sean

A Background in Teaching, a Passion for Wine and Food

Long before he was an advertising executive or college professor, Sean worked in restaurants in Florida, Atlanta, and Asheville, NC. There he waited tables, tended bar, flipped pizza dough, and (briefly) managed a place or two.

Sean eventually left restaurant work to persue his writing and teaching career, but the restaurant experience never left him.

It was his background in food and wine that sent him to London to pursue his initial sommelier education. And it was there that he envisioned the idea for Wine Fluent.

When he is not hosting wine tasting workshops, or studying for a new certification, you’ll find writing for his blog or local publications and – in his spare time – pursuing his food-and-wine-pairing passion with friends.
