sean 4 finalQ: If you aren’t at your desk, where are you most likely? 
A: In the Oasis playing table tennis. Fortunately there are many good players here who are helping me improved my game. One day I will be the champion of iContact!

Q: What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of work?
A: Is college football a hobby? I guess not, but it certainly gets me excited. I enjoy cooking, traveling, reading and history. I have been considering photography as of late; we shall see what becomes of it.

Q: If you could pick anyone in the world to have lunch with, who would it be and why?
A: I would have lunch with my grandmother. As I have become more mature, I have come to appreciate all that she has taught me about life, family, and community. I’d enjoy revisiting those conversation with ears that are now eager to listen.

Q: What is your favorite food?Sean1
A: Feed me pizza daily and I am a happy man. I prefer NY style but I will eat pretty much any kind as long as it is veggie free.

Q: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
A:That is an easy choice. I would live in Paris to experience the culture, food, and history. Also, it would be much easier and cheaper for me to travel throughout Europe.

Q: What is your most treasured possession?
A: I know this should be one thing, but I have three. They are my soul, time and, name. These will define who you are, what you’ve done, and the legacy you leave to the world. As such they are of equal importance and I couldn’t chose only one.

Q: What is the one word you would choose to describe yourself?Sean3
A: Realist.

Q: What is a fun fact about yourself?
A: I experienced an 8.1 earthquake and a typhoon at the same time. This occurred August 9, 1993 on the island of Guam, where I was stationed while in the Navy. This is more of an interesting fact than a fun one. It was far from fun!

Q: What is some advice you would give a new employee for being successful at iContact?
A: Work hard and master your role. Develop your career path and utilize all that iContact has to offer to achieve your goals.
