Shea is a native of the midwest, arriving in California in 1975. He has worked in the U.S. as a filmmaker, theater artist, actor and director. Shea’s work is always looking into dark corners, finding the light, addressing the themes of transformation, transition and healing, according to a press release.

Shea has made several documentaries, including a self-financed film on the sex abuse debate in the United States within the church called “Fathers and Sistuhs.” The short film is slated for several festival entries including the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences short-list.

Currently he is in production with “Runners,” a mesh of American History and “resto cars.” Shea is a prolific visual artist practicing to “raise our perspective of social consciousness.”
