At 18 years of age, straight out of school, Seamus landed his first role on TV as a host for Toasted TV on Network 10. For four years, Seamus learned the ins-and-outs of entertainment by dousing himself with slime, riding roller coasters while easting hot dogs and interviewing Hollywood A-list celebrities.
After four years of pure fun and frivolity on screen, Seamus was poached by the producers of Network TEN’s to be a reporter for Totally Wild. This is where he found his love for wildlife, adventure and telling a story through pictures.
Leaving Network TEN after 7 years hosting a variety of TV shows, Seamus’ breakfast radio career began. Waking up Australians from behind the radio mic for 5 years around the country.
Now as a keynote speaker and stand up comedian, Seamus graces the stage making his audience laugh and feel empowered through his inspiring and hilarious keynote presentations.
Travelling the country speaking to a wide age group, speaking in schools, universities, local business and at large national conferences Seamus uses his extensive media experience to make his audience both laugh and cry.
Feeling incredibly bored and disengaged at school, Seamus was more interested in making people laugh and distracting the class. As a result of not taking school seriously, Seamus graduated with horrible grades and hated hard physical labour so was stuck with limited career options.
But Seamus already knew what he wanted to be when he ‘grew up’… a TV host! How does a ‘dumb’ kid with ADHD, Tourette Syndrome and an attention span shorter than this sentence land a job entertaining Australia?
"It was simply a brilliant keynote speech for our delegates and the feedback has been nothing but positive."
"...a truly inspiring and motivating session"
“A great positive energy to be around and such an inspirational talk."
Seamus is thoroughly engaging speaker whose message of motivation, overcoming adversity and aspiration left our young men captivated. His message is powerful and thought provoking as he relays his life journey and the lessons he has learnt. Seamus left our students with clear messages of hope and tangible ways of being true to what they desire in life.
I have no doubt that many students walked away feeling buoyed by Seamus' words and inspired to make their perceived flaws or weaknesses, their very own "superpower".
"Seamus is a true inspiration and I would highly recommend him to any organisation"
"...Seamus was brilliant at communicating with us in the lead up and post event as well."
Seamus' passion and energy was amazing. He engaged well with the students, many of whom later spoke about feeling a real connection with his story and experiences. His gentle yet powerful approach to addressing the challenges we all will face was something the students could walk away with feeling empowered. He's a great speaker and one we truly want to have come back!
"Seamus authentically presents his story of resilience and naturally captures the attention of young people."
What an amazing human! The gift he has given my son is invaluable. Seamus went above and beyond, gave such an inspirational talk and spent time talking with my son about his journey with Tourette’s. His talk was so well received that I had many “Thankyous” from the children afterwards and multiple messages from parents that evening saying their children came home talking about Seamus and the points he discussed. Thank you Seamus, my son has a new hero!
