Rev. Shane McDowell



I am Reverend Shane McDowell... I live in the North Texas area. I haven't lived here my whole life though. I was born in Miami, FL in 1974...yeah... I'm getting older! I lived in Miami for the first couple of years of my life, before moving to Phoenix AZ, where I lived for a couple of years. Then I moved to somewhere in Texas (Hempstead or Katy, I think) - I will have to check with the Mom about the exact whereabouts. After Texas, I returned to Arizona, then up to New Jersey, back to Florida, then New Jersey again. Once I was old enough to decide where I was going to live (18), I loaded up my orange 1973 International Scout II and moved to Conroe TX. Since then, I have lived in different parts of Texas and will only leave North Texas to live in Georgia. I have an amazing wife (Heather), two children (Ian and Zac), and a step-son (Easton). I have an obsessive personality and wear white jackets a lot. If something peaks my interest, I do everything I can to learn about it. When I was younger, it was a lot of reading (or looking at pictures). Now, it's a lot of internet how-to videos, websites and interest groups. I still read books, but only those that have something to teach me. I have learned a whole lot about Web Development, Photography, Auto and Diesel Mechanics, and Sales. That sort of makes me sound like a Jack-of-all-Trades, which I don't feel is accurate. I feel proficient enough in a hobby when I am to the point where I could take a job doing it and not miss a beat. Currently, I work as a Product Implementation Specialist (build smaller websites inside a much larger one) for an insurance enrollment company; and I shoot Weddings, Engagements, Events, Portraits, Cars, Motorcycles, Models, Seniors, and whatever else I can see through a viewfinder. I am also an Ordained Minister.
