Clearwater, FL
U.S. Army
Military Police



Sean was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of South Florida in 2016, majoring in Criminology. Two weeks post-graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Military Working Dog (MWD) handler. Sean was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas for the duration of his five years of service, serving under the 89th Military Police Brigade. He deployed twice during his time in the Army, spending time in Kuwait, Qatar, and Afghanistan. Stateside, Sean was able to work in conjunction with the Secret Service, assisting in protection missions, which granted him the privilege of protecting Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and both of their families on multiple occasions. Sean transitioned out of the Army in the summer of 2021 to pursue his MBA at Notre Dame that fall.

Sean comes from a traditional, Irish-Catholic family and is the first in his family to attend Notre Dame. He chose Notre Dame because he wanted to attach his family to an exceptional university with an extensive network and to allow his future family members the opportunity to share in the same experience. Upon graduation, he will have majors in both marketing and strategy. He plans to combine the education received at Notre Dame with his years of leadership experience in the pursuit of a successful career in marketing.
