About Sean


“Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. I want to know what passion is. I want to feel something strongly.”

- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
When describing myself, the first word that comes to mind is passion. Passion for life, and passion for the things that occupy it.

As you may have figured out, I have a great interest in anything creative. I Love writing, poetry, photography, web design, graphic design, etc... Writing is near the top of that list. Although I have no aspirations of fame, I still get a great satisfaction from putting a piece of my soul on paper.

Another Love of mine is photography. A Love that caters to the basic need to remember, and to capture a piece of the earth's beauty. One thing that always makes me sad is knowing that I will never have enough time to see even a fraction of the beauty the world has to offer. This is a fact that bothers me
almost every day, and is a prominent factor in my writing and photography.

On a lighter note, I'm actually not as academic as you might think by reading this. I Love to laugh and have fun, and when I'm not releasing myself in ink or capturing life in pixels, I tend to get lost in music or movies, or playing games with friends. I Love playing cards, board games, trivia, and definitely sports.

Professional Life

I graduated from Indiana University in 2002 with a Business degree in Computer Information Systems. IU helped to instill me with an entrepreneurial spirit, and I have started, helped start, or ran several business in my life, including a programming consultant business, a wedding photography business, and a digital advertising firm. As for full time employment, I have been an IT Guy / Systems Administrator for nearly a decade combined. I still consult on the side with web design, graphic design, and various other projects. Get a hold of me if you have a project that needs my attention. I will be glad to discuss it with you.
Personal Life

I grew up in a small town on the border of Indiana and Illinois with roughly 200 people in it. I spent my summers and weekends riding my bike, or at the park playing pick-up basketball and football with the other town boys. I played 7 sports in high school, and graduated 3rd in my class. Then I went to IU, and spent the most amazing 4 years of my life there. It helped shape me into the person I have become, and I miss it often. After college I moved to Evansville to pursue other things, and I have been there ever since. I recently got married on 6/14/14 to my beautiful and Loving bride Amanda (sorry again ladies), and we spend our time working on the house, playing with our adorable dachshund Spades, working out, or hanging out with our large group of friends (you know who you are). My hobbies include golf, disc golf, running, writing, photography, cards & games, poker, movies (I built an awesome theater in my house), fantasy sports, watching sports, playing sports, etc...
Goals

One of my major goals is to write a very successful novel, or series of novels. This of course means getting published by a legitimate publishing house, and landing a book deal. I am currently working hard on that goal. Another goal of mine is to travel a lot more. I have a huge bucket list of places I would like to see, and have yet to make a dent in it. Now that I'm married, I hope the two of us find time to see a lot of the amazing things this world has to offer.
