At the Chamber, he writes about public policies affecting businesses including energy, health care, and regulations. When not battling those making it harder for American businesses to succeed, Sean raves about all things Wisconsin (his home state), religiously follows the Green Bay Packers, and posts food pictures to Instagram. In addition, Sean may or may not have an unhealthy obsession with Canadian power trio Rush.
