Production is like putting a giant puzzle together everyday.
Shawn has always enjoyed storytelling, especially listening to others. Everyone really does have a story to tell. When she realized that she could couple her love of storytelling with her love of film, Shawn decided media production was for her.
Shawn majored in communication, with a focus on media production, at East Carolina University. She also worked at the campus station as a DJ and general manager.
After finishing school, Shawn quickly fell into project management and producing. She loves helping a concept come to life, and finds working with clients, writers, and editors very exciting. She has worked with companies like IBM, Lowes, Red Hat, United Therapeutics, and BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina.
Producers never have a dull moment. Quick thinking and creative problem solving are must-haves. Shawn describes it as “putting a giant puzzle together everyday.”
Shawn loves documentaries (and documentary film festivals!), reading (historically set novels are her favorite), baking and sharing with others, and singing along to most anything on the radio—in most any place.
