DPAN.TV The Sign Language Channel

Sean Forbes, alumna of Rochester Institute of Technology ’08, is the co-founder of D-PAN, The Deaf Professional Arts Network. Since 2006, D-PAN has been creating accessible ASL centric videos starting access to popular music. In 2016, after realizing more than music was not accessible, Sean and the D-PAN team created DPAN.TV The Sign Language Channel, a home for ASL videos. In 2019 D-PAN launched ASL Captions a deaf centric captioning company to provide captioning and transcription services. Sean is an accomplished deaf musician who has performed all over the world, but loves being home in Detroit with his partner JoJo and their two daughters.
