Shane graduated high school on the Front Range at Cherry Creek High School. He has degrees in Business Administration and Recreations with an emphasis in Hotel and Resort Management from Western State College. He also minored in skiing. He pursued a career in real estate in Denver for 10+ years. In 2014, after battling the traffic to get to work as well as to go skiing, he decided to move to the mountains, and works where he plays! Enjoying skiing, hiking, biking, and wilderness out his front door, he doesn't see an end to his amazing relationship with Telluride.
