Sean Ellis enjoys a life-long love affair with adventure. As a teenager, he pursued an elusive pirate legend and combed the Pacific coast for buried treasure. He has searched for Mayan ruins in the jungles of Honduras and chased rumors of gold in the American southwest. As a soldier in the Army National Guard, he has served abroad and at home, participating in hurricane relief efforts in New Orleans. Sean also enjoys adventure sports and has participated in mountain bike races, off-road triathlons and even a marathon in Afghanistan. He currently lives in the Land of the Northern Lights where he divides his time between studying environmental science and pursuing his greatest adventure: fatherhood.
