Shane was born into a musical family. He began in musical theatre in the early 80s, and his career in advertising took off at the same time. He returned to acting professionally two years ago and is extremely dedicated to learning the craft and loves working with other like-minded artists. He continues to invest in his acting career with on-going training and believes that you never stop learning! He loves music (jazz/funk) and plays drums regularly with his band 'The Untouchables'. He also keeps himself in good physical shape through swimming and cycling. He’s sociable and extroverted but likes taking time to listen and be still.
