About this Bright Light

Well before attending Michigan State University, Shawn had long recognized in himself a passion and talent for storytelling. Since his college days, he has dedicated a career toward helping others share their stories in strategic, impactful ways. Shawn brings extensive strategic communication and marketing experience – nearly as diverse as our clients. He has spearheaded communication battle plans for healthcare and environmental advocacy groups, given brand makeovers to organizations and individuals, and held leadership roles on winning political campaigns, both local and federal. Serving as a Senior Communications Specialist, Shawn works to build and implement winning public relations strategies using a concert of tools and tactics.

Based in our Burbank office, Shawn’s as proud to call Michigan his home state as he is to call Southern California home today. Outside of serving our clients, you'll find him smiling when he's wandering on his bike, hiking hills or mountains, exploring coffee shops and eateries in different neighborhoods, and playing or refereeing hockey.
