Sean moved to Christchurch to study at the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art (NASDA). After a year, he decided that his interests lay backstage, instead of onstage, so he transferred to the University of Canterbury to study a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English and Cultural Studies, focusing on playwrighting. He is currently the PR and Platforms Manager for MUSOC, the University’s musical theatre society and regularly performs in their shows.
