Character of the Day:

Shawn – The Next Spielberg

Shawn was the reason for our get together last night at Red Rocks. I have already mentioned the reason for his visit but haven’t talk about Shawn. Since Shawn’s gotten to know so many of us, let’s get to know Shawn on a personal level. He was born and raised in upstate New York. After high school he attended NYU’s film school but felt restless and unsatisfied, so he moved to Florida where he marketeered for GE until he decided to switch coasts and migrate to Santa Monica, California. Having saved up some money he surfed and explored until he went broke. A lifesaving deal with his loving parents — his Mom is his biggest fan — allowed him to finish NYU with a BFA in Dramatic Writing and he’s been busy in the city ever since. In addition to the plays, screenplays, comic books, and journalism he’s written, he’s worked for the producers of Pan’s Labyrinth and administrated contracts for HBO. Being a huge fan of a certain Douglas Rushkoff, he sent a fan letter that, remarkably, led to him working with someone he respects as a master writer. He says he loves the work because it allows him to “continue a lifetime of learning.” Which leads us up to today. His favorite thing about Birkdale… “Everyone is so nice, they embody my ideal of Southern hospitality!”
