SEAN LAMBORNE, VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR
Sean Lamborne was born and raised in the Rust Belt outside of Detroit, MI, and began playing live music during his time at Western Michigan University. He spent Fridays mornings on his roomates radio show, “The Nonchalant Café Hour.” He plays in a hard-hitting Americana/Rock band called The Longest Day of the Year and wears his alter-ego TMULE on stages across Colorado as an indie folk rock singer songwriter, and plays children’s music as Tiny Mule.
Sean is a librarian at heart. He brings years of public library experience and a Masters in Library and Information Science to KRFC 88.9 FM Radio Fort Collins. As an organizer, creator, and trainer, the Volunteer Coordinator position allows him to do what he loves – use an entrepreneurial mindset and a nonprofit setting to help people grow personally and professionally by providing resources, connections, and ideas. He loves to watch creativity and collaboration build community, but his most valued time is spent with his wife and son, playing games, traveling the world, and exploring nature, science, and silliness.
