Shane was born on the north side of the Illustrious River Thames in Camden Town to an English Mother and Irish Father. After studying Primary Education for three years, Shane realised his dream of working in the sporting world, and decided to embark on a sports journalism course.
He joined St Mary’s in September 2017 as a trainee sports journalist, and leans towards the multimedia and broadcasting side of journalism. He hopes to one day have a social media brand that gives fans instant news from the world of combat sports, which will include Boxing and MMA as its primary topics.
After playing Football at senior amateur level for several years, He’s recently found another passion in life with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and competes regularly in competitions around the country. Outside of those sports, Shane also shows an interest in Horse Racing, Rubgy Union and Tennis.
He states that many of his favourite writers and broadcasters stem from the world of boxing and MMA, most notably Gareth A. Davies (Talksport/Telegraph), Ian Darke (BT Sport/ESPN) and Adam Smith (Sky).
