Shawn Cornelius

Shawn Cornelius is originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee where he graduated from the Center for Creative Arts and then completed his bachelor’s in Theatre at Middle Tennessee State University. His training is in live performance, improv, character development and storytelling with performances in Chicago, New York City, Northern Ireland, and the Greater Nashville Area. Most recently he co-starred in the award-winning short film, A Heart’s Calling. As the son of a teacher, and a multifaceted Creative himself, he enjoys teaching young members of the community to cultivate their inner artist in every way they can. Cornelius is a local interior designer and performs as much as possible. When he isn’t performing he enjoys illustrating, dancing, and refurbishing furniture. “If you make space for your will to be creative in whatever medium you like throughout your life, you will enrich your life and the lives of others. Thank you Monthaven for continuing to provide that opportunity to the community.”
