About Sean

twitter-headshot-jan-2017

Currently travel tech editor at Skift, and previously reporter and editor-in-chief at travel technology publication Tnooz. Was senior online editor for BudgetTravel.com and founding editor of its blog, This Just In. Several stories I assigned and edited drew hundreds of thousands of unique visitors. During my last year, BudgetTravel.com won the gold award for the best online travel journalism site in the Oscars of U.S. travel journalism, the SATW Lowell Thomas Awards. In 2009, the site was a top-six nominee for a Webby Award in the Travel category (losing to Kayak, a travel search engine). For three years, I edited the travel blog I founded. Here’s a rundown of the posts I’m most proud of.

Budget Travel articles were often been picked up by major news portals, such as CNN.com and MSNBC.com. A couple of times these projects were featured on the top of Yahoo’s homepage. (Other Yahoo hits that I assigned and edited include “Tourist Traps We Love” and “World’s Weirdest Hotels.”)

Before that, I was on the staff of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine, I wrote about 60 feature stories plus the monthly column “The Lowdown.” For my clips, click here.
