After graduating from The College of William & Mary with a BA in Government and New York University with a certificate in Film Production, Sean spent the first part of his career in the broadcast production departments of major New York advertising agencies, starting as an Assistant Producer and working his way up to Executive Producer. His agency experience includes time at Ammirati & Puris / Lintas, Gotham, Quantum Group, and Saatchi & Saatchi.
Highlights of Sean’s ad agency work include a six-spot Olympic package for Hanes starring Michael Jordan, a Super Bowl commercial for the American Heart Association, launch campaigns for several high-profile pharmaceutical brands, and having Jane Seymour treat a bee sting he received while filming a commercial at her home.
In 2007, Sean helped launch MUGSY, the U.S. office of international commercial production company Filmservice Productions. As MUGSY's Executive Producer, Sean recruited creative talent for the company's roster (directors, editors, VFX artists), oversaw entire life cycle of projects (from bidding through production and post), was a primary contact with both agency and corporate clients, and managed the company's office operations and budget.
Returning to agency production, Sean has produced award-winning campaigns and product launches for L'Oreal, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Zoetis, AbbVie, Avanir & Takeda, working with Ogilvy, McCann Health, Luckie, and Advance MarketWoRx.
Having produced a wide range of integrated content, Sean is adept at finding the right solution and the right talent for any project.
His experience shooting on four continents and working with a wide range of celebrity talent (including Michael Jordan, Danny Glover, Bruce Springsteen, Jane Seymour, John Ratzenberger, and the Real Housewives of NY) has given Sean unique skills and expertise that help him adapt to any production challenges that may arise.
