Sebastian is a Londoner by birth, but he grew up in the quiet county of Dorset with his parents, little sister, and beloved cat (that replaced a few angry hamsters). He and his father share a talent for impersonating various accents – their favourite being his Dad’s native brummy twang. He also has a fierce passion for football, specifically Southampton FC, and loves cooking. Spoiler alert, he didn’t fulfil his childhood dream of becoming a chef - but still prepares an excellent Thai green curry from scratch; paste and all.
When he isn’t getting a bit too emotional watching Southampton’s regular defeats, or losing a shoe to a pursuer during a prank gone wrong in boarding school, Sebastian, a “good guy” by nature, enjoyed starring as the “bad guy” in school plays. His dramatic talents led him to become well-known for giving Christmas the ‘bah humbug’ as Scrooge in ‘A Christmas Carol’ and killing Mercutio in ‘Romeo & Juliet’ as Tybalt.
When deciding to go to university in Southampton, it was partly to support his football team more closely, but mostly to become an expert in English Literature. Whilst there, Sebastian ended up analysing endless novels and deciphering the meaning behind numerous poems. After graduating, inspired by an insightful online course in Digital Marketing, Seb decided to return to London to join the PPC team at Merkle | Periscopix.
