Hi, I’m Sean, and I'm the Nonprofit Fixer!

I’ve worked in nonprofit organizations since I was 16 (over 28 years).

I'm a coach, consultant and course creator helping to transform nonprofits and their leaders.

I love nonprofits. I study nonprofits. I also lead and fix nonprofits. Whether it's local, state, or national - or charitable or political – I have helped grow and develop organizations of all kinds. I've served as an Executive Director for 5 organizations. I am a coach and consultant for boards, executive directors, and activists of all stripes. I’ve worked in communications, victim services, civil rights, environment, policy, bullying prevention, lobbying, management, and much more.

I learned how to run a nonprofit the hard way – by watching someone do it poorly. I’ve also been thrown into the deep end and told to sink or swim. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else, so I have made it a commitment to my business to train people on how to effectively fundraise and manage organizations for maximum impact. I’m nationally known and respected, and I’m a really swell guy (just wait, you’ll see!).

Best of all, I cut through the BS. My tools and trainings are straight-to-the-point, immediately useful, and chock-full of tips and tactics you can start using today.

I have raised money for a wide variety of causes, community projects, political campaigns, and much more. He is a published author of "Fundraising Power Pack"

I live in New York City with my husband Travis and my adorable dog, Harry!
