Sean grew up in Ripon and went to Ripon High. His dad was a police officer. He started running in 2002. In 2016 he ran a marathon in full [police gear inspired by another officer that did the same thing. Following that marathon he started running with at risk kids form Marshall Elementary school. It helped to open up dialogue with the kids about their problems. The Los Angeles based 10 K with a kid contacted him about starting a program in this area.
