After a decade of playing hockey and pulls the short straw when it came to physical height, some of Sean’s school friends introduced him to skateboarding. With out a car and only a parking lot, freestyle was the only option.
Sean graduated from North Carolina State University’s College of Textiles where he studied apparel product development. While studying, being a teacher’s assistant, a manager at Delicious Skateboard shop, Sean consistently performed at local demos in parades and fairs.
With graduation being the main focus for May 2012, Sean went into the World Round Up unprepared, but walked away focusing on his career in apparel manufacturing and striving to achieve that childhood rush of skating for fun.
You can find Sean posting on Instagram and YouTube some of the most technical truck transfers imaginable, if you’re willing to see pictures of him working on industrial sewing machines as well.
