Bonjour, Hello, Howdy, Hola….(you get the idea)!
My name is Shannon Looney and welcome to my site! Here you will find my portfolio of professional work, a blog full of adventure, thoughts and muses, photography (film and digital) and much more!
And a little about me…
I was born in Hartford, Connecticut but did not stay there too long…because from there on I was on the go living in over 10 other places. Moving around is the norm for me and so traveling has felt the most natural. As a writer, photographer, and traveller, I have always been eager and equipped to tell or create a story for friends, family, and the curious.
I have a B.S. in Communications from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio where I focused on interpersonal, cross-cultural and media studies. My interest for communication and a passionate love for connecting with people from all over the world has led to many adventures.
My most recent adventure was a nomadic service year with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC). What a whirlwind it was! I learned all sorts of skills like mucking and gutting homes after the hurricanes hit the East Coast, construction, building fires from scratch, taxes, and more (check out my journal for a month-by-month reflection)
Since completing my time with AmeriCorps, I am actively seeking employment with interests in media, PR or communications in a remote setting or the Raleigh-Durham, NC area.
I love learning, chatting, collaborating…etc. Feel free to reach out—my socials are linked below!
