CEO / Marketing Director

Sean had been a web & marketing consultant for large corporate firms for almost 15 years before he jumped into the Artificial Turf Installation industry. As a homeowner, Sean had fallen victim to many contractors over the years that, quite simply, did not deliver as promised and/or under-performed.
