Based in San Francisco, Shaun builds and engages Endeavor’s network of mentors and partners on the West Coast to support Endeavor’s portfolio of 550+ high-growth companies. Previously, he spent three years in Endeavor’s New York headquarters, helping launch its research group and providing pre- and post-selection services to Endeavor Entrepreneurs from Latin America and the Middle East.
Prior to Endeavor, Shaun was a senior editor at the Economist Intelligence Unit, the research arm of The Economist Group. His journalism, research and project management experience also includes field research on property rights in South Africa, a Leonard Silk Fellowship for investigative journalism at the Center for Public Integrity in Washington D.C., and a Judicial Administration Fellowship in Sacramento, California.
A native northern Californian, Shaun migrated east to study political theory and contemporary poetry at both Tufts University and Oxford University. He played collegiate basketball at both, and was the point guard on the Oxford team that won the British National Championship. Shaun is fueled by words, seafood and travel.
