Hi, I’m Sean.


My name is Sean Flannagan. I'm a product maker from Rhode Island who spent a lot of time in New York and San Francisco and is now trying the homesteading life in a 300-year-old house back in the woods of Rhode Island (with frequent travel). I like figuring out how to make products that people love to use.

I've helped build and grow Etsy and Wanelo as well as a few physical product brands, and I've been matching people with products online in increasingly interesting ways for over a decade. Now I'm building something new, and helping a few fast-growing companies as time allows. Marketplaces and the future of commerce are big interests of mine. I'm also a fan of skateboarding, rare books, mountain biking and learning how to do things.

You can also find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Product Hunt, Quora, GitHub, YouTube, Flickr and Instagram, as well as Etsy and Wanelo.
