Beginning his career in Toronto as an audio engineer Sebastian has worked with artists to help bring their visions to life. When he first arrived in the city, after completing Music Industry arts at Fanshawe College his focus was solely on studio music production. Although he had theatre in his blood, he never would have guessed where his path has taken him. While engineering albums such as; Sun K’s Bleeding Hearts and Nýdönsk’s Á Plánetunni Jörð, Sebastian began work as a theatre technician at Factory Theatre with a focus on sound and lighting. Maintaining hobbies of photography, experimental/folk music and pastel artwork Sebastian grew as a creator during his time there.This lead to his first foray into location recording/sound design for the film Shark Week written and directed by Bri Proke. Falling in love with the work of sound design, Sebastian is now pursuing projects in other mediums such as lighting design. Having been the technician for so many lighting designers in the past, Sebastian felt the pull to try his hand at the craft himself. The first of these projects he got his hands on being Dock Mother God Society, written and directed by Bryce Hodgson, and the second being this project. Sebastian is excited to continue honing this new craft and hopes to bring a unique creativity and meaning to the team.
