actor - singer - writer

This mild-mannered, highly caffeinated, guy-next-door hails from Oak Park, Illinois. After years of performing across America, including Las Vegas, Minneapolis, and Lincoln, New Hampshire, Shaun moved back to Chicago and continued pursuing work on stage and screen. 

The web series "Humane Resources," which he both wrote and starred in, was an official selection for the LA Indie Film Fest and the Austin Web Fest in 2015. You can see the full series at
