Executive Producer/Host - Connors Digital Media Studios
Shawn was born with a heart murmur and had his first heart surgery when he was just three years old. It wasn’t until he was 37 years-old, that he started having problems again.
By the time he was 40, Shawn’s wife had become seriously ill. He was very focused on taking care of her, even though he was also quite sick too. It soon became apparent that Shawn needed an LVAD. Six months after his implant, his wife sadly passed away from cancer and Shawn became the sole caregiver for their children.
It’s been six years since his implant and Shawn now has a podcast called LVAD Talk featuring The LVAD Nation where he has interviewed many other LVADers including numerous HeartMate LVAD Ambassadors. His videos and podcasts are available on YouTube and LVADTalk.com.
Shawn is the owner of Connors Studios Digital Media, where he creates digital multimedia art for the internet.
