Music was an important part of Sean’s upbringing; his father was an electrical engineer but played the banjo in the family band, and his mother was a piano teacher.

He continues to play with other professional musicians and for the last four summers has been a member of the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theater Company.
Sean’s day job is as a faculty member at Earlham College and Indiana University-East. He also teaches private students from the Dayton area. Sean’s wife, Dr. Wallis Vore, is currently the clarinet teacher at the University of Dayton.
In his spare time, Sean is interested in learning about food and the culinary arts and spending time with his wife and two Shih Tzus, Sophie and Abby.
