Sean McLintock is a passionate young South African seeking to promote positive socio-economic change through innovative, technology driven solutions. He recently graduated from a master’s degree at Columbia University where his thesis focused on the impact of automation on employment. Despite previous degrees in Law and Political Science, Sean left his legal career in South Africa to forge his own path in the New York City tech scene. He is currently working for a public relations firm in New York City, focusing primarily on technology companies. With an interest in legal-tech, the blockchain and urban farming, Sean hopes to found his own start-up in the near future. In his free time, Sean focuses his efforts on building his anti-poaching and conservation non-profit, RhinoXCaliber. As an official VETPAW ambassador, Sean can be found public speaking at various African focused conservation events across the United States. Grateful for his African upbringing, Sean is committed to giving back to the diverse and challenging environment that raised him.
