THERE IS A STIGMA ATTACHED TO WORKING IN THE ADULT INDUSTRY. MOSTLY BECAUSE PEOPLE SIMPLY JUDGE TO FAST. IT IS EASY TO LOOK DOWN ON THINGS YOU DON'T QUIET UNDERSTAND. TO JUDGE PEOPLE WHO DO THINGS YOU MIGHT FIND UNACCEPTABLE. IT TAKES MORE TO TRY TO GRASP THE REASON WHY AND LEARN ABOUT THE PERSON BEHIND THE IMAGE. TAKE SEAN ZEVRAN FOR EXAMPLE. A BEAUTIFUL MAN, SUCCESSFUL IN THE ADULT ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. BUT SEAN IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. HARD WORKER HUMANITARIAN, COMMITTED ATHLETE AND ENTERTAINER. FOUR SIDES OF A MAN WHO MADE THE CONSCIOUS CHOICE TO LIVE HIS LIFE THE WAY HE WANTS TO.
We have said it before and we will say it again, the best way to get in great physical shape is physical work. Of course regular exercise in the gym helps to complete, but everything goes better when you have a good base. Josiah Jennings AKA Sean Zevran knows this as no other. Born in 1988 in Shreveport, Louisiana, Sean spent most of his youth helping his parents raise horses and bale hay on a small farm in the Pine Woods of East Texas. Regularly tending to over thirty horses and hauling hay in the scorching summer heat did not only shape his body to perfection, it also instilled in him a strong work ethic that Sean carries with him to this day.
Josh/Sean is quiet the athlete. He ran both cross-country ad track and field and was state competitor in both sports all four years of High School. During this time he also worked three jobs and was heavily involved in church, participating to several mission trips including the Habitat for Humanity mission to El Salvador. Though having grown more atheist over time, it is a period that definitely helped building Sean's personality.
Even after High School Josiah continued to work hard. He enrolled at University and enlisted in the Marine Corps at the same time. His collegiate years were spent honouring his commitment to the Marine Corps and completing his studies for a degree in philosophy. Though he originally planned to go active duty after graduation he eventually decided to decline his commission and abandon his plans to complete Marine Corps Officer Candidates School when he realized he wasn't really happy. Having previously committed so much of his life to school, sports, the Marines and various other jobs, Josh felt as if he had run himself ragged and missed out on a lot. He now wanted to do something adventurous. Not being ready to take on a 9-to-5 job, nor to go back to school, Josiah's adventure came when his friend submitted his photo and contact information to adult video company Randy Blue. Randy Blue contacted him soon after, and it wasn’t long before he was being flown to Los Angeles to shoot his first porn video. Alas the birth of Sean Zevran.
Sean Zevran rapidly became a favourite of Randy Blue fans which made him decide to sign a two year exclusivity contract with the company. After that he moved to Falcon Studios Group where he became the first Falcon Edge exclusive. It was in this time he also started to work the circuit as go-go dancer, which offered him the chance to dance for some of the biggest gay dance parties in the United States. Sean Zevran never regretted to make the decision to work in the adult entertainment industry. "My work in the adult film industry has been an exciting experience," Sean comments. "Of course, there is a stigma attached to working in the sex industry that has presented its challenges, but I revel in challenges and enjoy my taboo profession. What I enjoy most is being able to apply my experience and knowledge to a world radically different than the one in which I grew up and studied. I believe it has made me a more versatile individual."
How versatile Sean Zevran is on physical level he perfectly shows in his stunning collaboration with photographer Jorge Rivas. In what is definitely a highlight in Jorge's ever growing Mirror Project, Sean offers us a 360° view on himself, thanks to the help of strategically places multiple mirrors.
