Shaun has also performed in many projects, from the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (video game), "UFC Undisputed 1, 2, & 3" (video game)..."Spider-Man: Web of Shadows"  (video game) and "The Lackey" (Award Winning Feature Film).  As well as dozens of Visual Effects projects with ACME Film Works and the hit TV Series, "Robot Chicken".


His training began early in life, as his father was a theater professor and stage director at the local college.  So Shaun, showing that he had a love for creativity and a thirst to entertain others, was guided in the right direction by his parents.  


In his home town, Shaun developed a solid reputation for his creative work, from theater productions, to dozens of local commercials, where Shaun impersonated Jim Carey, Rain Man, Chris Farley and many more. But Northern California could not hold on to him too long, before he was called to Hollywood.  The rest is history, yet there is still more to be written.  


Shaun's reputation followed him south, where he continues to build on his reputation of being fun, easy to work with, honest, efficient, and something that producers really love, 'staying on budget while exercising time management thoroughout the shoot.'  


He has trained in Martial Arts is an AAU National Champion in Martial Arts, is a 4th degree Black Belt Shaolin Kung Fu and 1st Degree Black Belt in Okinawan Karate.  Shaun was able to use these skills in films, television and 37 action video games to date and even partaking in a shootout atop a moving steam train on ABC's hit show, "Revolution".


OTHER SKILLS


MULTIFACETED

I HAVE MANY DIFFERENT TALENTS

 

Shaun is not your average director, as he has years of experience in many areas within film and television productions, something that many directors do not possess.  This gives Shaun a special understanding of most departments, what they do, the intricacies, as well as their day to day struggles and how to over come them.  This really helps in production team building and reacting appropriate to problems should they arise on set.  A very important key, to a smooth show.
