5 Questions for Seth

Senior Partnerships Success Specialist

Question 1: What’s your Action Network origin story?

I came to Action Network as a core team member for the then new Action Builder toolset. I had a fun introduction to the team and our Action Builder team; Martha, Michael, and Shabab. The highlight of our onboarding was visiting Prince’s Paisley Park in Minneapolis. 

Question 2: What is your favorite thing about working at Action Network?

My favorite thing about working at Action Network is supporting a variety of partners, from individual activists to small grassroots organizations to large federations, that collectively help to advance the progressive movement around the world. Additionally, I enjoy the ability to delve into special projects and pursue professional development opportunities.

Question 3: How would you describe what you do to your friends and family?

I try to make it simple, but it is kind of an abstract role to explain. In short, I share that I work for a non-profit that makes software, and I provide training and support for users.

Question 4: What sea creature does the original Action Network logo look most like?

A sassy sand dollar

Question 5: In which order did you see Barbie and Oppenheimer?

I saw Barbie in the theater over the summer and sadly, I have yet to see Oppenheimer, but it’s on the top of my list right now.

A little more about Seth:

I have the privilege of working with Action Squared, where I get to make impactful contributions to the progressive movement around the world. A highlight of my career was playing a role in the unionization of 5,500 Minor League Baseball players, helping them to effectively employ Action Builder to navigate geographical and linguistic challenges.

My commitment to social justice and curiosity led me to apply for a selective 9-week Racial Equity in Technology Policy Accelerator where I wrote a federal policy memo advocating for a National Bargaining in Good Faith Fund aimed at addressing BIPOC underrepresentation in labor unions, especially in growing sectors like the gig economy and tech supply chain.

I’m proud to hail from Cleveland, OH, where I enjoy indulging in live music, sports, kayaking, and fishing, alongside spending cherished moments with my lovely wife Tiffany and our fur babies, Mickey and Py. In an alternate universe, my ultimate career would be as a champion Formula One race car driver or a professional surfer.
