It's a community of 350 souls hard-pressed to find opportunities and hope for its next generation. Putting his own money and reputation on the line, Shaun has embarked on what some call a crazily ambitious project to turn this humble fishing and logging village into a world-renowned cultural tourist destination.
Currently starring on CBC's This Hour has 22 Minutes, now in its 23rd Season, Shaun's work has taken him through the world of theatre, standup comedy and improv. In 2010 he starred as Detective Vik Mahajan in the critically acclaimed crime drama Detroit 1-8-7 on ABC. More recently, Shaun played Andrew Palmer on NBC/Global Television's The Firm, starring Josh Lucas and Juliette Lewis.
Shaun's dreams were the subject of the hilarious hit documentary series on the W Network, Majumder Manor.
