Seth was born in the OC and raised in Southern California. Seth joined the SQ team back in 2002 with his wife Joy. Somehow Joy convinced Seth to move from sunny SoCal to southwest Oklahoma to become the first full-time staff to join Founder Kent Susud. Since 2002, Seth has led PWP Projects to Indiana, California, Belgium, Greece, and Ireland. In 2011, Seth and Joy returned to Southern California after five years of living in Belgium to begin SportQuest San Diego.
Seth's passion is to see young people become committed followers of Christ. With a heart for discipleship, Seth coaches high school tennis and facilitates a tennis academy, through which he has the opportunity to train young people competitively as well as challenge them spiritually. Joy has organized a girls volleyball club with four teams, and she personally coaches one of the teams. Her relationship with these girls goes way beyond the volleyball court as she opens her home and her heart to them as well. Together they also serve the youth ministry in their local church in Valley Center. Seth has a true servant’s heart and a unique ability to solve complex challenges. He loves to laugh and make others laugh. Seth has a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from California State University, San Marcos.
