ABOUT SHANNON

I'm a publicist, digital marketer, freelance writer and clumsy cyclist currently based in Chicago.

I currently work as the Publicity Director of world-renowned rock club Metro Chicago, along with its sister venues Smartbar and GMan Tavern. I am also a proud member of the Indie Publicity team and serve as Wolves In The Throne Room's social media manager.

Born and raised in Munster, Indiana, I didn’t tread far to pursue my double-B.A. in Journalism and Cinema Studies at DePaul University in Chicago. While earning my undergrad degree, I clocked in time at the Chicago Reader, 826CHI, the DePaulia, Metro Chicago, and Radio DePaul. Following my graduation from DePaul in 2014, I served as Social Media Manager and Webmaster for the Adler Planetarium and Social Media & Intern Director + Office Manager for Metro Chicago, Smartbar, and GMan Tavern. 

I've lived my life abiding by the Conan O'Brien quote, "If you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." And you know what? It has rung true with every job, client, and challenge I've pursued.
