Sean Voisen is a programmer, designer and occasional philosopher who hails from San Diego, California. He has been engaged in an intimate love affair with the Flash platform for the past 11 years, but has been known to cheat on occasion with other technologies like Processing and Ruby. As an independent developer, Sean has had the good fortune to work with companies like Adobe, PayPal, Userplane/AOL, and Hallmark on projects built in AIR, Flex, Flash and Ruby on Rails. As an instructor at the Art Institute of California-San Diego, he has worked to share his hard-earned knowledge with the next generation of Flash designers and developers, and has learned a few new things along the way. When he grows up he wants to be an interactive media developer.
