About Sean

Sean is a story-teller who loves a good story and the entire process of Cinematography. He considers visual story-telling and beautiful imagery to be a perfect match, and also believes that the creative process is the most beneficial process in Cinematography.

". . . my life is the best movie I will ever produce and direct, so why not make great images and tell great stories at the same time. . ."

No matter what medium everything has a story, and putting them together is his passion. One of his professional goals is to become an ASC Cinematographer and eventually financing his own projects.
