Sean Earley

At first just a job to put him through school, Sean jokes that with his psychology major, he ended up in the right profession: helping people with their problems and creating a comfortable atmosphere for guests. Originally from Boise, Sean came to Boston looking for that perfect balance of a neighborhood restaurant with loyal regulars, and an innovative craft scene behind the bar. He found exactly that at Ward 8.
