Sean a native New Yorker, has been indirectly involved in the arts and entertainment world since a young boy. He grew up watching his older sibling perform in various school productions, dance with the famous Alvin Ailey Dance Co. And even on the big screen in two major feature films. Sean later tried his hand in acting while attending East Harlem School of the Performing Arts Jr High School, But soon let that aspiration die after a failed attempt to get into the coveted LaGuardia School of Performing Arts in New York City. Sean later pursued other dreams. Although Sean’s career and his two young children kept him very busy, a creative gene for writing stories ran through his blood. Sean began to use his free time, although minimum, to pen these stories. Sean began as a Production Assistant on various independent films including Jason Cusato's "Apostles of Park Slope. Gaining experience on this production and others, Sean decided to try his hand at making his own film. White Boy Brown was his first feature film which screened at various festivals including the long running African Diaspora International Film Festival. The film was also invited to screen at the University of California Santa Barbara Culture Center showcase. After graduating from CUNY'S John Jay College and earning his degree in Criminal Justice, where he improved his by taking production and directing theater classes, Sean continued to work on other indie films that are not his own through his company Stop and Watch Films.
