Sean Kane
Lead Site Reliability Engineer, New Relic


I am a long-time system administrator and operations engineer who has lived in places ranging from Alaska to Pakistan. I graduated from the Barnum & Bailey Clown College and completed two college internships with the CIA before going back to “real” school and getting 2 degrees.

In my spare time I enjoy photography and sharing with my children the endless wonders of science, the great outdoors, and rappelling down skyscrapers.
