A few things you didn’t know about Sean:

Make it happen.
When I think about where FMS was when we started and where we are now, and to think I was a part of it, that is a great achievement.
Taking my family on a trip, creating an experience for them.
I don’t like “can’t.”
It would either be cooking or the greater skill … the ability to multitask. I get more done in two hours than most people get done in a weekend.
Realizing that it is about a team; it’s never about one person. That’s why our team is so good right now. We all get that.
It melds well in that my family is involved and they know what I do, they know why I’m doing it, and they know the members of our team. At the same time, there is a good gap between work and personal because I feel like I am very dedicated and focused and so driven at work, and I need my family to help me relax and remind me at the end of the day why I’m doing it.
The people who get to do road tests on cars, and then evaluate them and write about them … I’d love to be that person who writes articles for Car and Driver or Road and Track, Automobile, any of those.
