This upbringing fuels Shannon’s constant desire to tell stories that are as interact and culturally diverse. After completing a degree in professional acting at Dawson College in Montreal, she returned to Toronto to attend Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts to pursue her passion for musical theatre. Never one to stop learning, she has since expanded her skills to film production through experiences on various film sets in various positions. Almost one year ago, Shannon founded Toronto Indie Night (@toindienight) a short form media fest by the indie film community for the indie film community where artists of all stripes can show case their old and new work. She thanks Reelworld Film for this opportunity since, throughout her years of experience; one constant has been her understanding of the importance of arts in the promotion of social change and the need for increased diversity in our cultural spaces.
