From his years as an inner-city Chicago math teacher and international school Principal in Jerusalem, Israel; Shane has developed a love for and a passion to serve those on the margin of our global society. At the age of 5, he and his family immigrated from Jamaica to the US and eventually settled in Clearwater, FL where he grew up before attending Wheaton College (IL) and meeting Jeff Ford.
Through the eyes of his eldest daughter, Simone, Shane has been challenged to do more especially for the orphans and widows in our world. Her desire to eventually work for/own an orphanage and his relationship with Jeff and Jason Clement led Shane to go on his first Man Up trip in June 2016. Since then, Shane continues to seek opportunities to steward TIME: Talent, Intellect, Money, and Energy he has been entrusted with for Christ and His kingdom. As a travel junkie, Shane is ready to join any Man Up event, especially after going to Uganda in the summer of 2016!
Shane and Sarah, his wife of 18 years, make their home in Clearwater with their three children: Simone (11), Anthony (5; born in Bethlehem while the family was serving in Jerusalem), and Sophia (3). When not serving with Man Up, Shane leads, Impruved, the leadership development and change management international consulting firm he founded.
