Lifetime’s ‘Marrying Millions’ featured Sean Lourdes as one of the millionaires in season 1. Lourdes is a highly successful business mogul and leads his 60-year-old family publishing business, Auge Media as its current President. He is also the Founder and Chairman of the philanthropic organization The Lourdes Foundation, dedicated to empowering the youth of the world. Sean, a child of a “brutal” divorce, was born in LA but raised in Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and New Zealand.
Despite his family’s massive wealth, his father, Emilio, who retired from the publishing business in the late 1990s, inspired his son to make his own way in life. Sean is part of the alumni of the prestigious Kings School and has a matriculation degree from St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy. He also later finished his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Marketing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The famous millionaire combined his international upbringing and his formal education to work towards his passion for bringing cultures together and helping today’s youth gain opportunities that will allow them to lead the future.
