Shaun + Star Wars
For as long as I can remember STAR WARS has been a part of my life. As a kid, I made it through church every Sunday by imagining being Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon fighting Darth Maul up in the rafters. I was Obi-Wan for Halloween twice (one with Padawan braid and one without) and my sister was Padmé.
In 2015, the release of The Force Awakens reignited my passion for STAR WARS and within a year I was all caught up on the TV shows and books that were canon.
I'm here to share my love of STAR WARS and to keep learning from the saga that has created mentors, turned learners into masters, and inspired us all since 1977. From the movies, books,comics, video games, and toys; I'll be here for STAR WARS as long as STAR WARS is there for all of us.
Besides all of the childhood memories I have of STAR WARS as a kid my favorite STAR WARS memories have been introducing my wife to the saga watching all six films prior to the release of TFA and rewatching the films with friends.
I live in the Bay Area and work at a brewery in a small town right on the Pacific Ocean. I do lots of jobs at the brewery including brewing, cellaring, sales, LOTS OF CLEANING, and some tap tending. My wife and I got married in 2017 in Yosemite National Park. We met in Miami, lived in Chicago for a few years, and have been in the Bay Area since 2019.
Our little fur babies are Mamba, a Norwegian Forrest Cat, and Vader, a Lab-Rottweiler mix. Surprisingly, it was my wife who named our pup and not me (ironically, he was named Luke at the shelter).
When I'm not thinking about STAR WARS I enjoy baseball (listen to almost every Cubs games), Major League Soccer (Columbus Crew), and avidly run and read (but not at the same time). My wife and I enjoy travelling and hiking.
