In 2020, Sean established the August Publishing Company, an independent publisher that has created the Self-Education Series. This series was designed to introduce children to the concepts of financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and other essential life skills that are often excluded from most public primary school curriculums. Our objective is to provide children with the essential resources to apply this knowledge proficiently in their daily routines. We strive to foster independent, innovative thinking, and problem-solving skills in our readers, which consistently stimulate, exercise, and motivate their imaginative abilities.

He enjoys creative writing, collecting, visiting marine aquariums, and spending time with his children, Jacob and Savannah. He is deeply committed to community outreach and serves as the Vice-Chairman on the board of directors at Spuyten-Duyvil Preschool. For Sean, the most cherished aspects of his life are his community.
