As a child and through his teens, Shane competed internationally in competitive shooting and 
nationally in martial arts. 

Before deciding to study Architecture, Shane was accepted into Parsons School of Design in New York and Paris. As part of his portfolio submission for the admissions jury, he created art pieces portraying Fuzzy Hall and Mike Miranda.

Shane's Favorite thing about Tulsa: "Rolling Stone Magazine just published an article calling Tulsa “The Next Austin.” Although it’s certainly a compliment to be compared to such a trendy and edgy city, I can tell you that the momentum Tulsa is gaining is just the beginning of something epic. I’ve lived all over the world and professionally studied urban design strategies my entire career. What’s happening here is unprecedented in terms of urban revitalization, philanthropy and advocacy. There is no other place in the US where I would raise my family. My children will grow up knowing that they can make a difference here and affect change. What better environment to give them a greater sense of purpose!
