Born in Chicago, Sean moved to France with his family when he was 6 years old. He was raised in Senlis, a beautiful medieval town that nurtured his passion for history, about an hour north of Paris. After high school, he came to Paris to study film and worked for a long time on movie sets, as an assistant director.
But in late 2016, he decided to change careers, retook his studies and eventually became a full time licensed tour guide in Paris.
Sean feels at home in the city of lights, with such a wonderful access to culture, art, and history.
He specializes in different periods of Parisian history from gallo-roman antiquity, gothic-medieval times, the eventful French Revolution period to the dark days of the occupation during WW2.
He also thoroughly enjoys working in the wonderful museums and monuments of Paris, like the Louvre, the Orsay, the Invalides and the Opera House. If he had to choose a favorite place to work in, it would be the Sainte-Chapelle, as Sean never gets tired of the amazing 13th century stain glass windows.
