Hey, I'm Shannon!

New York, New York

Shannon is an actress, producer and meditation teacher in NYC. Born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, Shannon spent her entire childhood always performing in any way she could. Her first moment on stage was at age 3 for a dance recital and from that moment forward she knew she wanted to be an artist. After high school she moved to New York City to study in the Integrated program at The American Musical And Dramatic Academy. 

 

Shortly after graduation, Shannon was lucky enough to land a job doing background work on the hit CBS Drama, The Good Wife. For 6 seasons she was able to take in all that she could about the professional television and film world, all the while studying and persuing speaking roles in indie projects and student films. This real life experience is what sets Shannon apart from many other actors in the industry. 

 

Working behind the scenes at The Actors Green Room, one of the top actors networking studios in New York, Shannon has learned an invaluable amount about what happens on the other side of the table and in the audition room. She knows that the creative process encompasses so much more than just the talent on screen and loves the team process involved in making a film or television show come to life. Shannon prides herself on knowing as much as possible about all aspects of filmmaking and thrives on a curiosity that is always looking for ways to learn more.
