He grew up in Long Island, New York to Christian parents. During a time when his father was going through Depression, Seth chose to pick up a basketball and start playing the game. He became obssessed and would not stop practicing his dribbling skills. Since then he has never stopped playing the game despite the amount of hurdles he has endured. 
His grandfather, who was healed of cancer more than 20 years ago, currently travels as an evangelist sharing the testimony of his healing with others. Seth's father ministers in his local church through music, and his two brothers are youth pastors.
