Sean comes to Fahrenheit 212 with a keen eye for storytelling, as an award-winning director and editor with a career spanning commercial, corporate and documentary production.
His professional interests took hold at an early age, when he took a photography course and learned the art of telling stories with pictures. Much later, during postgraduate studies in urban journalism in Colombia, South America, his investigation of urban networks propelled him into the turbulent world of perilous driving and loose change, while snapping photos of his thesis project, a bus route.
Upon his return to the US, Sean landed in San Francisco, where he started his career in production at Macy’s Satellite Network, learning the fine art of live broadcasts, field shoots, and President’s Day sales. To diversify his project experience, he left Macy’s to focus on video prototyping at IDEO, where he developed design ideas for clients including P&G, Kraft, CISCO, Marriott, Sony, and HBO. Most recently, he edited the online videos for the new Sony Style launch. And he is now exploring web-based media with MONO, telling short stories about the daily life of musicians. A musician himself, Sean understands the rhythm needed to create compelling edits.
In 2006 he shot, co-directed and edited the Colombian documentary ‘Sanpachando,’ which won Best Documentary at the St. Louis Filmmakers’ Showcase. He is currently working on ‘Cultural Samurai,’ which speaks to the art of Zen and a life lived by the sword.
He now lives in New York City and restlessly pursues the discovery of a good west coast burrito.
