Sean sparked his photographic interest in high school, moving to UCSD to study film theory, then eventually to Brooks Institute where he envisioned Black Owl Media in 2007 originally as a freelance photographer. Since the age of five Sean has been involved in martial arts and was originally employed full-time as a Tae Kwon Do instructor before attending college. Sean’s perspective and approach to life has been highly influenced by his fascination with martial arts and has allowed him to quickly excel in just about any subject he puts his mind to. After graduating and with dreams of furthering his sports photography career, Sean moved into a camper van and hit the road indefinitely. Through constant traveling and freelancing Sean was able to concentrate the talents that now comprise the Black Owl team. Sean now resides in San Diego.
