The first decade of Sean's law career was spent as a trial lawyer based in Toronto,Canada.Prior to law school, he served as an advisor to a conservative government on youth policy. Upon discovering the nascent digital gold space, Sean went all in,launching e-gold's first widely popular application, a virtual stock game. Sean later proved out the viability of a hedge fund type model for syndicated sports betting in San Jose,Costa Rica. After government intervention censored the use of digital gold for online free market business, Sean leveraged that gold knowledge as a professional trader of Gold Futures and Options. The advent of Bitcoin nudged Sean back to online free-market economics and he co-founded SilentVault ,a P2P digital assets platform, in 2012. Sean is thrilled to have the threads of his professional life all weaving into collaborative fruition in Ascension.
