About Sean Silver:

Curls out of: Exmoor Curling Club

Curling start: "I was taught to curl by my father, Dick Silver, in Rochester, N.Y. For more than 20 years, I had the privilege of playing with my father in more bonspiels than I can recall, from Seattle to Newfoundland. Prior to him passing away, he coached my team to a memorable quarterfinal finish at the 1999 Men's National Championship in Duluth."

Most memorable curling experience: "While I have had many memorable curling experiences, the most meaningful moments have been watching my wife, Ann Swisshelm, represent the USA at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi and 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City."
