Sean Forbes is a musician on a mission. An accomplished and passionate drummer, rhythm pours out of him, when he breathes, walks, types at his keyboard or hits his drums. Music is in his blood, his cells; it’s just the way he is.
He’s also deaf – and out to build a badly needed bridge between the music industry and deaf people everywhere.
With his passion for music, Sean has opened the door to musical expression – a world historically considered off limits to people in the deaf community. His dream of music for all has helped to transform the way deaf people perceive music. Through his videos and his outreach to deaf people everywhere – particularly young people eager to feel included in popular culture – music is being presented to them as a beautiful symphony of thought and expression, available to all. The hearing community, too, is fascinated by his ASL translations of musical hits and is clamoring for more. Since 2008, Forbes has also performed in over 40 cities across the US; including college campuses, live venues, and at retailers such as Borders and Barnes & Noble. To date, Forbes has appeared in front of over 150,000 people.
Sean Forbes is living proof that if you have enough passion and dedication, magic happens and dreams come true. “The world is run by those who show up,” he says, “And I’m showing up.”
Amber Tansey- 28 born and raised in Santa Rosa. Went to California School for the Deaf, Fremont for 4 years. Graduated from Santa Rosa High school- 2003.Took a basic first aid responder class few years ago and fell in love with the dream EMT job. Just completed my EMT program at Santa Rosa Public Safety Training Center at the Junior College. Basically I'm like the first profoundly Deaf EMT in California as far as I know.Plan on getting a job as EMT, just haven't decided which field- on the ambulance, in the emergency room or with the fire department just yet. Been doing a lot of ride alongs. Just spent my 28th birthday with the SFFD for a ride along which was a blast. And brought a lot of attention of how I would work in the 'hearing world' as an Deaf EMT. So I was given the opportunity to show what I could do, as I took blood pressure, help move patients and spot a firefighter downstairs while carrying patient down. It was nice.I'm prepared for a lot of various kind of comments from people who learns that a Deaf EMT has come this far. I've already seen some not so nice ones like its impossible for me to be an EMT. Or as if I'm putting my crew into risks based on my deafness. Nothing's stopping me from doing what I love to do, and that's helping people.
Signing Time is a labor of love, born out of the desire for one mother to create a community that could communicate with her deaf daughter.

www.bringjacobhome.com My son Jacob is a perfect beautiful little man. He was born premature and has had health problems but never had anything less than a joyful demeanor. He made parenting easy, just always smiling and laughing. The last time I saw him was in April of 2009 after a two week vacation to Tampa. I have called/emailed her and her relatives begging for word, pictures, or leaving messages and still have never heard an explanation as to why his mother took her and left. Money problems and what looks like personal issues seem to have been the catalyst to her absconding with our son. My Brother, My Best Friend, and a few other Heros have kept this fight going. Law enforcement didn't want to get involved until I looked up the statutes (federal and state) and held their feet to the fire. There are something like 1,100-1,400 international parental abduction cases every year. 14 others in Colombia in addition to mine. The most famous case you may recall is the David Goldstein vs Brasil, that was especially tragic because the mother had already passed away and it was 3 more years before David got his son Sean back. I have maxed out every credit card and called in every favor I could, but it is just a daunting task to try and stay the course when you consider the limits of finances and the possibility of putting my sons mother in prison and having my son hate me for it. Or losing in court in Colombia and here in broward.
