Seow is of Chinese descent on his father's side.[2]

A former Melbourne Under 19s player, Seow broke into the seniors in 1986 and played 14 games that year.[3] His season ended prematurely when he was suspended for striking Michael Pickering.[4] He appeared four times in 1987 and spent the following year in the United States, where he trialed as a wide receiver for the University of North Carolina.[2][3][5] When he returned to Australia, Melbourne secured his services via the 1989 Pre-season Draft.[6] He made seven appearances for Melbourne, five in 1989 and two in 1990.[3]

Sometime after his football career ended, Seow moved to Shanghai.[2] He now resides in Washington, D.C.[7]
