Principal and Creative Director
In 2000, Sean founded SOS, a specialized creative studio based in Brooklyn, NY. For over a decade, he has set the mission and creative vision for the highly regarded firm; inspiring passionate clients, solving business problems through creativity, and garnering industry recognition.
Sean has always been devoted to pioneering new ways to communicate through technology. His obsession with how digital tools can affect business goals, learning and social change are at the heart of the SOS culture.
Prior to SOS, Sean held Design and Art Director positions at New York start-ups and agencies throughout the 90s. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been recognized by The Webby Awards, Communication Arts, SXSW Interactive, Business Week, The Smithsonian, and Apple. Sean lives in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn with his wife, three children and a persnickety turtle named Holly.
Caitlin joined the SOS team after years spent in the nonprofit sector– experience that has prepared her to handle the demands of projects that seek to make a big difference, both on the web and in the real world. She comes to SOS after leading her former nonprofit through a full website redesign and rebranding, a process that allowed her to see first hand how innovative technologies and clear messaging can help organizations more effectively meet their missions.
Caitlin hails from New Hampshire, holds a degree in History from New York University, and once performed in the circus. She currently lives in Brooklyn, where she’s always on the hunt for a good cup of iced coffee and a great pick-up soccer game.
As an Art Director at SOS, Miriam brings a stylistic breadth of experience from non-profits, small businesses, museums, and the health care industry. She is passionate about affecting positive change through smart, multidisciplinary design. She enjoys responding to diverse client needs with interactive design solutions, exacting typography, and making things look pretty.
Miriam was born in Denmark, and has degrees from Oberlin College and Parsons The New School of Design. She lives in Brooklyn, plays well with others, and takes pleasure seriously, just like Charles Eames said.
Roxie is thrilled to be the official studio dog and mascot at SOS. She takes her role here very seriously, and is always eager to lend a paw for the greater good. She enjoys long strolls to the Carousel at lunch, barking in her sleep from the back of someone’s chair, advising on font and color decisions, and consulting on new music choices for studio tunes.
Roxie was rescued in Los Angeles in 2004. She’s settling into middle age, as feisty as she’s always been, with a few less teeth and a studio full of adoring fans.
