…first and foremost, a human being.

Shady wrote the action movie Vendetta (2015) for WWE Studios. He’s also developed animated projects for Disney. Yes, he’s aware those are two completely different ends of the spectrum. He’s also done work for The Weinstein Company, Lionsgate Entertainment, Disney Junior, Rooster Teeth, Image Comics, and a whole slew of other companies.

Shady’s writing has also appeared in numerous print and online publications including The Onion’s A.V. Club, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, MySpaceCracked, OC Weekly, Draft Magazine, Milwaukee Magazine, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and a ton of others that are far less impressive.

In 2010, Shady cowrote the children’s book I Beg Your Pardon: The Tale of a Jerky Turkey with his sister Bethany.

From 1998 to 2007, Shady created, edited, contributed to, and eventually went into personal bankruptcy for the humor/entertainment publication Tastes Like Chicken. To this day, he believes it was all worth it.

During this time, Shady authored numerous comics and graphic novels (under the pseudonym Insane Wayne Chinsang) including Heaven, LLC, Bad Ideas, and The Roberts, as well as several children’s books including Missing the Boat and The Lava is a Floor!

Shady is the father of a brilliant daughter named Grey Danger, and a smiling son named West Rebel. They exhaust him.
