Shawn DeSouza-CoelhoShawn DeSouza-Coelho is a writer, scholar, and award-winning actor based in Toronto. He holds a BA (Dramatic Arts) and MA (English) from the University of Waterloo, the latter of which allowed him to explore the intersections between narrative and interaction design, particularly in video games. His second book, Whenever You’re Ready (May 2018, ECW Press) details the life and career of Nora Polley (currently the Stratford Festival’s longest serving employee at 54 years) and is the first biography of a stage manager ever published. Believing that every story possesses an ideal medium, Shawn is currently writing and illustrating his third book, 90 Days, which is a graphic novel centering on recovery from sex and pornography addiction. Shawn has also authored and co-authored numerous scholarly publications over the years and is currently Research Advisor at the Games Institute at the University of Waterloo.
