About Me

shaysights-aboutI was born and raised in The Great White North in beautiful Vancouver, B.C. I grew up skiing Whistler/Blackcomb in the winters and being on the beautiful beaches and coastline of the Pacific Northwest in the summer.

In 1998 through a very unique chain of events I bumped into Kianna Dior while feature dancing in Calgary, Alberta and later Dyanna Lauren in Toronto, Ontario. Dyanna had just started directing for Vivid and invited me down to Los Angeles to be in her first movie. I moved down to The City of Angels, Kianna followed soon after and the rest is history. I’m so blessed to still have these two amazing women in my life as close friends.

These days the things that bring me the most joy are the simple things. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy travel and nice things, but nothing makes me happier than picking fresh fruits and veggies to juice from my garden, gathering eggs from my chickens, sitting by my koi pond with a cup of tea and hanging out with my two rescue chihuahuas Henry and Gretchen. I’ve also recently embraced the feral cat situation in my area and have been active in the trap, neuter, release program so I now feed a large group of feral cats that live in the neighborhood. I consider myself extremely lucky to be a bit of an urban farmer and have raised veggie beds, chickens and bee hives right here in the middle of Los Angeles!

I believe in Heaven on Earth. It’s right here, right now if you choose it. One of the most important things in my life is my spiritual growth and evolution. Living life to the fullest and being in the present moment, balance, treating others the way I want to be treated and of course practicing several types of the healing arts are at the top of my list. Physical fitness is very important to me whether it’s kickboxing, circuits training, working out in the gym, yoga or hiking. I need to keep myself in good shape so that I can get into all of those fun positions everyone loves so much ;).

Seventeen years later, after an extensive career including well over 500 movie titles, directing and producing, I find myself wanting to focus on what my fans want to see and have gotten more active on my social media sites and shooting custom videos. Thank you to each and every one of you for all the amazing years of support.
