Shawn Gray has had a varied background, reflecting a life dedicated to learning and exploration. Having spent time living in 7 distinct cities of various sizes and character, Shawn adapts to his location and always aims to make the best of any situation.
While in Ottawa, Shawn fell in love with Ottawa Fury FC, which led to him writing soccer-related articles for Northern Starting Eleven. A brief relocation to Victoria, British Columbia, gave him the opportunity to cheer on Victoria Highlanders FC. He stepped in to acquire NSXI and was able to recruit additional authors from across the country to write about the soccer teams they love.
Recently, Shawn returned to Greater Sudbury, Ontario with his wife and toddler. Employed as an Administrative Assistant, he continues to own & edit articles on Northern Starting XI while cheering on his favourite teams from afar.
