As a filmmaker, Sean has always worked from both sides of his brain. While at Brown University, he completed a double major in pure mathematics and studio art. After returning to Los Angeles, he spent several years working in the film industry as a set dresser, prop assistant and art director. He began writing and directing his own films in 1992 through his work with Filmmaker's Alliance and continued his studies at USC's school of Cinema/Television, graduating in 1997 with an MFA in production. His Short Film (writer/director), The Shy and the Naked won a grant from the Sloan Foundation as well as a CINE Golden Eagle award. After finishing film school, Sean got his "break" when his first major spec script, The Dorm (2003), was purchased by MTV/Paramount. It is a psychological horror film not unlike 'The Shining' set in a freshman dormitory. Since then, while working on genre features (Halloween: Resurrection, Cursed (2004), Hypercube: Cube 2 (2002), and Masters of Horror: Sick Girl (2006 TV episode)), his involvement with Filmmaker's Alliance has continued, allowing him to consistently hone his directing skills, work with actors and shoot short subjects on film and video. Sean was recently awarded Los Angeles Short Filmmaking Grant, presented to him by Eastman Kodak at the Directors Guild of America.
