Shane began as an intern at StateWatch while working on his B.A. in English at the University at Albany. Shane has filled a number of different roles since joining StateWatch full-time in 2014, and is now an integral part of the Team's operations.
During his time at StateWatch, Shane has developed a sound understanding of the legislative process and has extensive experience navigating the budget process, from the Governor's introduction, across the jagged line of negotiations, to a three-way agreement. In his current role, Shane runs the internship program at StateWatch, covers Senate and Assembly committee meetings and hearings, as well as Assembly session, and generally keeps the office in good working order.
In his spare time, Shane resides and recreates at the northern end of Lake George.
