Key Accomplishments

I\'m a dreamer. Every day for almost 8 hours I dream, then I wake up and get shit done. I\'ve bootstrapped some of Vancouver\'s hottest restaurants, and learned hard lessons in the process. I\'m infected with startup sickness, and I\'m afraid the only cure is more startups. Currently I\'m working on Nickler, operating an architectural millwork company, and consulting for other startups and small businesses. Get in touch if you want to chat, pick my brain, or are looking for help.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I\'m a connector and a communicator. I excel in operations, where metrics and data matter, and I obsess over efficiency in process. I like to build things, whether they be restaurants, houses, cars, or simply lego.

They're my friends  •  Entrepreneur. In high school I created apps & games downloaded 750,000+ times. | Marketing Lead @ Axiom Zen | Founder @ Alectric Studios
When I first meat Sean, it was very clear that he is an exceptional entrepreneur. The advice that he provided me with was top-notch and gave ... me realistic expectations for my goals. When I reached out to him again for opportunities, he went above and beyond what I had originally expected and introduced me to several key connections in our city. Based on his past experiences of owning several restaurants, his current tech startups and my experiences with him, I have no doubt that he is the real deal.
