Sean Carrillo was born and raised in the Boyle Heights section of Los Angeles, California. He has spent the greater part of his life pandering to his baser instincts mastering the art of living. When sober enough to walk the opportunity arises he enjoys dumpster diving perusing areas of urban refuse collection for cool junk discarded objects redolent of a more graceful era. His other efforts include court ordered community service urban roadside renewal and buying food he can’t afford gastronomy. In short, to quote the mother of a dear friend, “He looks after himself.”
