Sean Folkson is founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nightfood. Folkson founded Nightfood when he couldn't find a solution to his nighttime snacking problem. No matter how carefully he ate during daylight, the nighttime combination of powerful hard-wire cravings for excess survival calories and decreased willpower led to unhealthy nighttime snacking.
Recognizing the growing body of research linking our nutritional intake with sleep quality, Folkson launched Nightfood, the first snack specifically formulated to give consumers a better, healthier, more sleep-friendly snack for that time between dinner and bed. Sean is a serial entrepreneur and problem-solver, having previously founded Specialty Equipment Direct, an online distributor of floor removal equipment, and, before that, AffiliatePros.com, an internet marketing company specializing in affiliate marketing.
Sean received a B.A. in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing from S.U.N.Y Albany in 1991.
