Our Story

Shawn spent life being an entertainer and a content creator: stand-up, improv, singing, song writing, designing, editing and hosting. Shawn has been seen on Hulu, VH1, Logo and can currently watch Shawn in 'The Mortified Guide' on Amazon Prime and in multiple podcasts and on social media sharing the love of Unicorns.


Shawn always was fascinated with magic, spirituality and Unicorns. Throughout Shawn's life they've had synchronistic run-ins with mediums and spiritual people who gave Shawn clues to some abilities. Shawn​ was given their first Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck from their sister over ten years ago. Shawn would read Tarot at parties while loving the practice from an intuitive perspective. One evening Shawn had a channeling experience from Spirit that lead him to take divination more seriously. Shawn sprung into action and dug into Tarot more deeply and studied with Liz Worth. To explore the channeling experience he studied and graduated from Patti Sinclair's Intuitive Awareness Intensive Program. Shawn is currently enrolled in Diana Cooper's School of White Light
