While attending Columbia College Chicago in the early 90s to study Stage Management, Shane mentored under Second City founding member Sheldon Patinkin. That contact led to a job with the Second City Touring Company, which led to working at Boom during their last year at the space which would later become the Sugar Factory and their first year on Leidseplein. After returning to the US for a decade, he came back to Amsterdam in 2008, where he’s remained ever since, and now has a Dutch wife, kids, house, passport and dog. These days he makes his living as a writer and voiceover artist.
