Sean Brebbia

Sean Brebbia is the Vice President of The Belfast-Beltway Boxing Project. As one of the charity’s founding members, Sean has been involved every step of the way as the BBBP grew from a wish to reality. A graduate of the George Washington University law school, Sean has been a law clerk in D.C. Superior Court, and was a trial attorney with the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia from 2007 to 2015, representing both juveniles and adults charged with felonies in D.C. Superior Court. His background offers a unique perspective on the challenges facing many young people in the Beltway region. As Vice President, he is seeking to grow and expand the services the charity can provide to local boxers. “Nothing broadens the mind like travel, and I hope to bring as many kids as we can on an international trip. When you travel with the BBBP, all you have to do is want to participate. We will help get a young person a passport, pay for their meals and lodging, and hopefully give them an experience they will never forget. My proudest moments are when our team boards that plane and begins to experience something they’ve never done before.” A lifelong boxing fan, Sean grew up in Marshfield, Massachusetts and is the great great grandson of Jake Kilrain, who fought the famous John L. Sullivan in the last bare-knuckle boxing match ever held in America. A graduate of Colgate University, he currently resides in Bethesda, MD
