I grew up in a small town just east of Seattle where my father told me I was born with a soccer ball at my feet. With two older brothers and a twin sister, I was always busy doing something outside and causing ruckus with one of my siblings. As a kid, I played soccer, basketball, tennis, and baseball but ended up focusing just on soccer and eventually played at the collegiate level for two years. After graduating from college with a degree in Psychology with an emphasis on criminal justice, I relocated to Beverly Hills where I took a role as a bodyguard protecting celebrities and fortune 500 executives which last about 3 years taking me all over the country. I soon realized being a bodyguard wasn’t my passion, so I moved to Scottsdale and became a sales manager working at the JW Marriott. Over the next 14 years, I worked my way up the ranks with numerous management companies in within the hospitality industry in Arizona and Washington as a Director of Sales and now GM of the Marina Del Rey Hotel with Pacifica Hotels. I am blessed that I found something I truly enjoy and love what I do. On the weekends you will find boogie boarding in El Porto or hiking up a trail in Malibu.

Sean Moor loves a good story. As a child he was shipwrecked alone on the desert island of Biblios, which is not far from Borneo. He survived typhoons, shark attacks and defeated the pirate attack at West Reef. He was finally rescued in 1983 on Christmas Eve by a Holiday Boat Parade entrant that accidentally left the harbor and kept going. Sean has said that he’d never forget the splendid sight of that boat listing onto his beach all lit up like a Times Square Christmas Tree. Today, Sean Moor is the manager of Westchester’s beloved independent bookstore – The Book Jewel.
