Shawn Hill left a chaotic life behind, including public school, at the age of 17 to pursue something better. Since then he has earned a GED, an Associates in Electronics Engineering, become a small business owner, a photographer, has earned a 2nd Dan rank in Taekwondo, and worked to help youth as a volunteer instructor for over 10 years, hoping to set a good example and demonstrate how learning to respect oneself and others can greatly improve individual well-being as well as the health of a community. In 2011 he founded and ran a non-profit called MARTiAL YOU in an effort to provide opportunities for kids of low-income households to gain the benefits of training in martial arts.
You can still find all of his instructional media for martial arts on youtube as well as information about his IT Consulting Company, VASTmicro Inc. on his company website vastmicro.com. In 2014, he focused his energy on learning the basics of writing, a skill he admittedly neglected to hone since dropping out of high school two years before graduating. Chances are he’s writing something right now and correcting it at least three times.
