Sean Boynton is an online journalist with Global BC.
Before moving to Vancouver, Sean grew up in Calgary, where he graduated from the journalism program at Mount Royal University. He served as editor-in-chief and news editor during his tenure with the program’s in-house publication, the Calgary Journal, and was the arts editor for the student newspaper The Reflector. While in school, Sean also contributed to Calgary’s monthly music magazine BeatRoute, eventually working his way up to managing editor.
Upon moving to Vancouver, Sean freelanced for a variety of publications including Black Press, before joining the Global BC newsroom as a freelance online news producer. He also spent two years writing for Global News Morning.
When Sean isn’t in the newsroom, he still likes to write about music, pop culture and politics, or you can find him on one of Vancouver’s bike trails or North Shore ski hills.
