Shannon Looney was born in Hartford, Connecticut and from there on out was on the go. Moving around was the norm of her life and so traveling was what felt most natural. As a writer, photographer, and traveller, Shannon is always eager and equipped to create a story for her friends, family, and the curious.  Holding a B.S. in Communications  from Ohio University (Athens, Ohio) she focused on interpersonal, cross-cultural and public advocacy studies.

Shannon’s interest for communication and  love for connecting with people all over the world led her to her current endeavor of serving with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC).  As a volunteer and media representative she intends to highlight her travels and experiences on this website through the various service projects assigned, and the people and communities she meets along the way.
