An Evening with Sean Berdy is an inspirational and humorous journey through Sean's life. Berdy, best known for his 5-year portrayal of the "Deaf James Dean" character, Emmett, on Switched at Birth, strives to inspire others by using his own compelling life story as an example of what one can achieve if they never stop believing in themselves and refuse to let others define their limitations.

Fans of Sean’s ASL music videos will also be happy to know he will be performing one of his favorite songs at the event.  Following Sean’s inspirational presentation and musical performance, he will open the floor to questions and then close the evening with an opportunity to personally say hello and perhaps snap a fun picture or two.

Sean's presentation, Q&A, and Meet & Greet will all be sign-to-voice interpreted.

NOTE: Please purchase your tickets online now. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.

An Evening with Sean Berdy is part of Sean's ASL Champions Tour. Proceeds for the event will be shared with this event's ASL Champion and gracious host, Portland Community College's Sign Language Interpretation program.  Thank you for supporting this wonderful program!


Event attendees are kindly asked not to record videos or take pictures during the presentation.  There will be an opportunity to take a photo with Sean following the Q&A portion of the event. Thank you!
