About me

Here’s a little extra, just in case you were curious

Some more about

Shane Hawk

He grew up in San Diego and still lives within its many suburbs. It’s way too sunny there. He needs some chills.

I’m a 90s kid. Grew up alongside my amazing brother with special needs. I love jokin’ around with people. “Life is too short” is always in the back of my mind. After spending a decade or so depressed, I’m nothing but optimistic and excited for what’s to come. Outside of the fiction world, I really dig lifting weights, traveling, referencing obscure movies, cooking, and exploring my other creative outlets, such as songwriting, playing guitar, and singing.
