Sean joined Team TPS in September 2019 and brings with him a wealth of theatrical experience – both as a lighting designer and stage hand, but also as a performer; appearing as lead roles in several award-winning stage productions including as Tommy in the 40th Anniversary Production of ‘The Who’s TOMMY’, Joe Casey in ‘Our House (The Madness Musical)’ and the title role in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’.

Sean founded Media Production company ThemeWorld in 2008 aged 16 where he worked with the likes of Douwe Egberts, The New Theatre Royal and The Portsmouth Guildhall. He sold the company in 2014, and subsequently moved on to take the role of Video Manager at Brentford Football Club. He remained there as Senior Communications Officer until 2018, when he departed to enable him to return to his roots within the theatrical world. Since then, he has worked with local organisations including Radian, DS Medical and Captec as a Digital Marketing and Communications officer.

In December 2019 he was delighted to join West End stars Earl Carpenter, Paul Wilkins and James Hume on their ‘Baaah Humbug’ Christmas tour which took them from the dizzy heights of Gosport to the Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin.

He most recently designed the lighting for the TPS production of FAME at the New Theatre Royal, with the help of Ben Taylor (fresh from the national tour).
