Born into an upper-class family, Sean never really had it hard. He was given everything he wanted, up until the age of 19. At this age, his father expected him to go to law school, and become a lawyer, he had infact paid for all of Sean's private education, and expected him to fend for himself one day. Sean never wanted this, and instead he wanted to explore the world. His defiance of his father drove a wedge between the two, and he ended up stealing his fathers prize posession - his Porsche 959 made in 1988. This vehicle was valued at around £1,200,000 but since Sean didn't have very good retail skills, he sold it for £300,000. But this was enough for him to buy a boat and set out for the open sea's, hoping he'd find whatever he was looking for.
