Storytelling and Media Curriculum Designer
Seamus was born in Detroit but raised in Hell. It’s a small town about an hour west of Motown. Seriously, Google it.
When people aren’t looking he daydreams about his burgeoning career at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.
When people are looking he is a San Francisco based designer, filmmaker, and educator.
His work tends to find a way of hi-jacking pop culture and redirecting it towards what really matters, education.
Prior to the d.school, Seamus toured the nation for three years as the Senior Producer with The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus working with thousands of students, teachers, artists, executives, and politicians. Producing multimedia content daily with these groups he developed a technique that fused immersion learning and hidden curriculum with transmedia production to create what he calls Transmedia Immersion Learning Experiences, or “TILES”.
He is the creator and lead instructor of DMA STUDIOS, a two week “TILE” designed for Digital Media Academy, and also the co-founder of TENANDTWO, a creative agency.
As a member of the @Stanford team, Seamus is excited to bring his craft of “TILEing” to a project that has the opportunity to redesign what it means to live and learn at Stanford.
Seamus has a BS in Sound Design from Ex’pression College of Digital Arts and a MFA in Documentary Film + Video from Stanford University where he also received Fellowships from The Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts (SiCA) and The San Francisco Foundation.
He also has an imaginary dog named Louis and a real girlfriend named Ann. Louis is a French Bulldog and Ann is a Korean singer. They are both adorable.
When he grows up he wants to be the very first test tube baby of a Don Draper, John Lennon, David Kelley mix up. Fingers crossed.
