Rock climbing, bouldering, hiking, camping, ultimate frisbee, and playing games with friends and family are all things Shane squeezes in during his spare time. He is also a hobbyist woodworker and is currently growing a cedar bonsai.

Shane has previously worked as a rock climbing guide and instructor, as well as one-on-one support with mentally disabled children as a personal aide.
