Hi. I'm Shaun.

For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about love and the sex that comes with it. You can say I have a bottomless well of energy when it comes to exploring matters of the heart. 


I'm the host of The Love Drive, the podcast on making sex and love less awkward. My goal is to help you learn practical, authentic, and playful ways to cultivate love, develop intimacy, and connect with other humans. Pretty simple.


As a lover of people and healthy communication, I've spent years studying how the words we use can make all the difference in our lives. I learned that honest and playful communication are the keys to better relationships, more sex, and less awkwardness.

I enjoy working with other people (both men and women) as a coach, and have been trained in Interpersonal Communication at the University of California, Santa Barbara.


I'm also a state-certified rape crisis counselor, and am currently in training as a Personal Coach at Concordia University in Montreal. I’m also a lifelong learner – fascinated by other people, their journey towards love, and what it takes for us to love more fully and gently. 


When I'm not recording my podcast, giving free love advice, or coaching clients on their love life, I'm playing with my dog, exercising regularly, and making friends in Montreal. 


If you'd like to work with me, head to the Love Advice page and find the various ways in which I can help.

In my other life I have been a technology sales professionals in the Bay Area, a taxi driver (where I used to record conversations with my fares and is how The Love Drive began), and a hostel owner and manager in Panama City, Panama (helping overlanders cross the undriveable Darien Gap).

I volunteer regularly at a bicycle co-op helping people fix their bikes, and regularly move my body through a variety of activities which mostly consist of rock climbing, weight lifting, and badminton. 

My life's work has been to support people in whichever way I can. I'm passionate about helping people experience more love in their life. So, how can I help?
