Director of Regenerative Design
“In our role within the development of all types of spaces, buildings and cities, we have always looked to nature as a means of inspiration. We are now looking at nature—life itself— as our partner and key part of the outcome.”

Based in San Francisco, Sean leads HOK’s global regenerative design practice. Over the past two decades, he has demonstrated his commitment to performance-based sustainable design and progressive approach to biomimicry in planning and design projects all over the world.

Sean is committed to ensuring that the built environment of tomorrow goes beyond net-zero strategies and instead yields mutualistic, net-positive benefits for nature, buildings and people.

He brings regenerative strategies to all types of projects, from planning and urban design to architectural, landscape, interior design and experience design. His data-driven approach ensures that all solutions are based on ecosystem performance metrics related to water, air, carbon, soil, biodiversity, and health and well-being.

Sean cofounded and is the past chair of HOK Impact, which leads the firm’s approach to social responsibility and empowering the communities where our people live and work.
