About Shannon

A lifelong musician with a degree in voice, Shannon found music composition, sound, and video design somewhat by accident. It turns out, however, that accidents can lead to thrilling journeys. 

Shannon's designs and compositions have been experienced across the country and internationally. Favorite projects include collaborating with fight choreographer Paul Dennhardt to create live sound effects within the fights in the Illinois Shakespeare Festival production of The Comedy of Errors, working with the ArtsCenter of Carrboro’s (NC) cast of children and adults to create original music for A Child’s Christmas in Wales, and even animating mucus for a veterinary teaching tool!

Shannon currently resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she is an Assistant Professor of Sound Design at Louisiana State University.
