Biography

Sean holds an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Acadia University where he competed as a member of the university’s football & basketball teams. From 2011-2015, Sean was the top male dual sport student athlete in Canada, helping lead both teams to conference championships. During his 3rd year at Acadia, Sean suffered what most medical professionals would consider a ‘career ending ankle injury’ during football practice, which ultimately required three surgeries to repair. Sean returned to the field & court for his senior season with 12 inches of metal and screws in his left leg, achieving career-best performances in both sports his senior season.

In 2018, after starting his Masters of Physiotherapy at University of Ottawa, Sean’s resilience was tested again when he tore the ACL in his right knee while playing basketball for the Gee-Gees. Sean underwent additional surgery to address this injury and ultimately returned to the court, helping his team achieve a 3rd overall national ranking and a spot in the National Final 8 tournament the following season.

Sean’s personal experience with injury and recovery has fueled his commitment to helping others overcome their own physical challenges. Since completing his Physiotherapy degree in 2019, Sean has worked with a diverse range of clients, including professional NBA and CFL athletes, professional dancers, BMX bikers, and individuals from all walks of life seeking to regain their strength and mobility.

Sean has played basketball professionally the last 3 years in Asia, Europe & Canada and most recently worked as a Strength & Conditioning Coach for Balkan Botevgrad, the 2-time defending champions of the Bulgarian Basketball League.
