For those of you who don’t know him, we’ll give you a quick introduction as we will be closely following all his adventures.
I have known Sean for a good few years and it all started at a little school in the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Midlands, called Clifton Nottingham Road, or Clifton Notties as we fondly used to call it. With around 150 kids between the ages of 10-13 years young (standard 2–6), it was a small and closely knit little family in the rural backyard of Southern Africa.
As you can imagine, many an adventure was had and this is possibly where Sean found some of his love for adventure… Although his Dad was a Game Ranger and he was already an avid outdoor kind of guy (kid).
From there, Sean went to high school at Hilton College in KZN. After school Sean pursued a career in professional photography… We won’t go into all the details right now as I know Sean has plans to tell a great story of how he decided to go from professional photography to a now leading endurance adventurer.
Professional photography to a leading endurance adventurer… Ok, so that is what Sean does, but what has he done then?
Here is just a taste of one of Sean’s great adventures…
“Enlightening and inspirational.”
“A true inspiration to us aspiring cyclists. From an academic view point, the talk was well constructed with no flaws and great detail was made to show the most exciting and jaw dropping tales from a young man’s youth.”
“Inspirational talk, nice beard. Made me want to get out on my bike and start putting the miles in again (though not 16,000 of ’em just yet).”
“Sean’s talk to our TEDxyouth@manchester conference astonished the student audience. His inspirational story and powerful message that nothing is impossible will stay long in the memory.” – Peter Rubery, TEDxyouth@manchester
“Sean’s talk about his John O’Groats swim kept an audience of 500 young people and parents enthralled from start to finish. His down to earth manner and can do attitude were truly inspiring and he left many in the audience thinking about how to challenge themselves and achieve something that they didn’t think they were capable of.” – Matt Morden.
