Shane was born in Salt Lake City Utah and raised in Southern California at Redondo Beach. As a young boy, Shane was drawn to the ocean. From spending time sailing with his grandfather, to catching the perfect wave, surfing became his passion. He and his friends were known as the “Soul Riders”.
Shane has always loved the outdoors and moving back to Utah was just the beginning of a life filled with amazing experiences and joy. Shortly after High School, Shane started working at Solitude Ski Resort as a lift operator. This led to other positions including ski patrolling, avalanche control and a heavy machine operator. His love for the snow and mountains turned into a 30- year love affair. Shane transitioned to Alta Ski Resort where he lived and worked for 15 years. In addition to mountain time, Shane served as a river guide in Colorado on the Arkansas river doing personal tours for other adventure seekers.
Shane eventually moved back to Southern California where he lived on a sailboat in Long Beach while going to Culinary School and working as a Chef. Shane currently resides in Salt Lake City Utah.
