#SideshowShannon

I WANTED TO WRITE BEFORE I COULD SPELL. I STARTED OUT WITH MY OWN BARBIE- INSPIRED MAGAZINE WITH STICK FIGURE DRAWINGS AND SCANDALOUS TALES THAT ONLY A SIX-YEAR OLD COULD DREAM UP FOR MY FAVORITE DOLL AND HER BUDDIES, KEN, MIDGE, CHRISTIE, AND SKIPPER.

IN ADDITION TO A LOVE FOR SANDWICHING WORDS TOGETHER, I WAS ALWAYS PASSIONATE ABOUT MUSIC. UNTIL I WAS ABOUT FIFTEEN AND IT WAS SLIGHTLY UNACCEPTABLE, MY YOUNGER BROTHER AND I HOSTED OUR OWN RADIO SHOW WITH OUR REAL AND IMAGINARY FRIENDS AS SPECIAL GUESTS. YES, WE KEPT OUR IMAGINARY FRIENDS AROUND A BIT LONGER THAN MOST, BUT IT WAS ALL IN THE NAME OF CREATIVITY..

STICKING WITH MY ROOTS, I ATTENDED NORTHEASTERN STATE UNIVERSITY PURSUING A JOURNALISM DEGREE WHERE I WAS A CONTRIBUTING WRITER FOR THE NORTHEASTERN, A GUEST DJ FOR THE QUAH, THE SCHOOL’S RADIO SHOW, AND AN ANCHOR FOR NSU’S TELEVISION NEWS SHOW, ALSO CALLED THE QUAH. BECAUSE I WAS INTERESTED IN ALL THINGS MEDIA, I TOOK A GREAT INTERNSHIP WITH TANDEM ARTS FILMS AS AN ASSISTANT EDITOR AND EXTRA FOR “THE ROCK N ROLL DREAMS OF DUNCAN CHRISTOPHER”. THIS MOVIE WENT ON TO RECEIVE MANY AWARDS IN THE INDEPENDENT SCENE.

AFTER GIVING ALL ASPECTS OF MEDIA A TRY I ENTERED THE REALM OF ADVERTISING, AND REKINDLED MY LONG GOING LOVE AFFAIR WITH WORDS ON A COMMERCIAL LEVEL.

WHEN I’M NOT WRITING AND MAKING A MOCKERY OF MY DAILY ACTIVITIES, I PLAY SOFTBALL, RUN AND SPEND TIME WITH THE LOVES OF MY LIFE, MY HUSBAND RANDY, SON BLAKE, AND YORKIE-POO ACHILLES.
