A writer and performer, Shannon draws on her eclectic background of improv, theater, dance, gymnastics, linguistics, Zen Buddhism and Corporate America to rub a metaphorical nose – through story and performance – in the juicy, blurry spaces between I, me, you, Who? Mu. Her fast-paced solo show, BURST opened in 2009 and has since been performed in New York, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Phoenix, as part of the Women at Work festival and as the keynote speech at the 2010 New Mexico Consumer Wellness Conference; her second solo show Self-ish, was presented at the 2011 Santa Fe Solo Performance Fest and The Garage in San Francisco May  2012. She is a regular featured performer at ActionFiction and Mortified! in San Francisco, Berkeley and New York. She also appeared in “Joy of Lex,” a documentary on language for The Discovery Channel. She studied at ACT and completed Meisner study at Waterfront Conservatory, and has worked with master teachers Rachael Adler, Tom Bentley-Fischer and Ruth Zapora
