About Sean

Currently a regular writer for a long-running, primetime network drama, Sean commenced his production career as an unpaid studio floor sweeper before working his way up to his first drama directing gig at Crawford Productions on their hit 80’s production Cop Shop.
Moving on to direct the now-iconic Prisoner: Cell Block H for Grundy Television (where he got his first screenplay credit) Sean has since written, produced or directed over 400 hours of internationally screened film and television drama.
Highlights of Sean’s career include eight of his screenplays being nominated for Australian Writers’ Guild Awards (with four of them winning their categories) and two of his screenplays being shortlisted for the prestigious State Premier’s Literary Awards in New South Wales and Queensland.
Other career highlights include being the writer-director of an AFI-winning screenplay as well as creating, writing, producing and directing the pilot to a 1-hour drama series based around the Australian Customs Service for the 7 Network in Australia.
