Born in Ohio as the son of two school teachers, Shan Serafin traipsed along the typical American education path, rounding out his studies at UCLA as a double major in math and English. His parents' pedagogical influence led him to finish college and immediately serve as a teacher in the inner city classrooms of Los Angeles, where he "mastered the survival skill of being able to tell precisely when a teenager is lying to your face."
An active Buddhist and occasional vegetarian, he has devoted over 12 years to community outreach, focusing on mentoring and supporting at-risk young adults. His first novel, Seventeen, was published in 2004 as a portrait of modern adolescence as told from the vantage point of a suicidal seventeen-year-old girl. He is now completing his second novel, Conquest, an analysis of the warfare of male dating habits.
His experience in stage and film began as an actor at UCLA, where he performed in several Shakespeare productions and assorted opera. He progressed to professional theater work in Santa Monica, performing with the Aresis Ensemble under the direction of Frédérique Michel, whom he considers one of his two mentors in directing. He then began writing as an uncredited dialogue sweetener and story-developer for several American and British television programs. Further written work includes his contributions to the Soka Gakkai Buddhist publications World Tribune and Seize the Day.
He directed and co-wrote the stage play "Essential Bond" about two-time Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling, which starred Matt Ashford and John Astin.
He married his wife, Beth Serafin, in a wedding ceremony inside The Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles on October 26, 2008. They live in West Hollywood with no dogs as of yet.
