A graduate of Rutgers University's BFA Drama program, he has starred in several independent films and has appeared on Broadway in the revival of Eric Bogosian's play, Talk Radio as "Kent", a drugged-up teen who is invited to sit in on the main character's radio show.

Sebastian was born in the Romanian city of Constanţa. At age 8, he and his mother moved to Vienna, Austria where she was employed as a pianist. Four years later (age 12), his mother moved with him to Rockland County, New York after she married the headmaster of an American private school.

It was then that he decided to take acting seriously and began to apply for acting programs at several universities.

He was also cast in a guest starring role on Law & Order as "Justin Capshaw", a boy who was accused of murder and had been kidnapped and emotionally abused by his captor.

Immediately after graduating from Rutgers in 2005, Sebastian was cast in The Architect and was given a chance to work with such seasoned actors as Anthony LaPaglia and Isabella Rossellini.
