Our Goal is Simple Really
"We want to help people"
We do this through Visual Story Telling and Education.
right now Team Hoot is involved in 3 areas
Team Hoot Media
- We've worked with multi million dollar companies, charities, restaurants, small businesses and even kids birthday parties. If you have a story that needs to be told visually, we're here help you tell it.
Team Hoot Pole Vault
- We've been extremely involved in the sport of pole vault since 2001. As a professional pole vaulter Shawn was one of the top pole vaulters in the nation. Since then he has become a highly sought after coach and educator around the world all while running a successful Pole Vault channel on Youtube.
Team Hoot Mental Health
- I was once told that Mental Health is the skeleton in everyone closet the no one talks about. For 25 years, I was one of those people. In late 2014 I decided to talk about my struggles with depression and as hard as it was, it's been the most life changing and wonderful thing in my life. Through YouTube, public speaking and Team-Hoot being another avenue for people to get help, I would have never imagined this thing that caused me so much pain has been a vehicle for good.
Our Guiding Light
Team Hoot is more like a way of life. It is an idea that by going against conventional wisdom, taking the road less traveled, trusting your instincts and facing your fears that you are more powerful than you imagine. We believe that life begins at the end of your comfort zone and that life is something that needs to be experienced vs spectated. Waking up with these perceptions are contagious, it builds courage to trust your heart, have more fun, and it inspires others to do the same. Thoreau once said "Most men live lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with a song still in them". We say sing your song! So many people live a life within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to an adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future.
Sometimes all it takes is the confidence knowing that there is a Team who, like you, believes life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a ride!"
People may be safe in the conventional, but that's not how we are meant to live
