Shaun Pulsifer (he/him) immigrated to Canada from the United States in 2006 and lives in Calgary, Alberta with his partner Ken Drysdale. Shaun was raised in a military family and grew up across the United States and in Great Britain. Shaun is a Summa Cum Laude graduate from the Los Angeles Film School with a Bachelor of Science in Digital Filmmaking. He is now pursuing a master’s degree in Entertainment Business in the online program at Full Sail University.
Shaun is the oldest of three siblings and is the second to pursue higher education. It hasn't been an easy journey, between working two jobs and the expense of attending even an online school. Shaun believes education should be accessible and affordable to all, and shouldn't require a student to go into debt or choose between paying their bills or attaining educational fulfillment.
Shaun was motivated to run for the Alberta Greens by a vision to see his community thrive through its diversity, and with a commitment to pursing imagination and creativity by supporting the arts community. He believes protecting the environment and following the science of climate change is essential to seeing Alberta thrive on the global stage.
He is an active congregation member at Friends Church in Calgary, a part of the Live Streaming team which makes services available online through YouTube. Shaun and his partner are in the early stages of looking into adoption to begin growing their family. In his spare time Shaun enjoys travelling through the mountains, where he feels one with the earth. Shaun also enjoys spending time with his friends and family.
