Artist's Bio

ShawnJ (pronounced Sean Jay) hails from St. Louis, MO where his creative mind got him interested in acting at an early age. Directing playmates in the art of playing dead was his first clue into the future.
SJ, as he's affectionately called by friends, spent 10 years in Sacramento, CA after leaving the Air Force before migrating north to Seattle.

His gallery of work has included some of his most favorite roles. One being that of the serial rapist Raul in Extremities where he says it was exilarating to get to explore the darker side of himself; and it's wicked!
SJ is currently trying to finish writing his first play, The Sweetest Days as he has begun outlining his second play, DIVAS.

Outside of theatre SJ works in the field of Social Justice bringing awareness to the various forms of oppression.
When not acting, working or writing you can find him spoiling his little diva in training Bella; a Smooth Fox Terrier too often mistaken for a Jack Russell.
