Shannon is a photographer, poet, camper, nature lover, animal whisperer, and person tamer currently living in the commonwealth of Kentucky. He likes soaps made by forest nymphs, beers that curl the tongue, and wearing things made of wood. He fancies himself a humorist with a genuine smile and a heart with too much ambition. He drinks way too much coffee and has waited too long to finally be vulnerable and too finally be himself.
