Shawn Cohen is currently single and living in Hollywood, with Russty, his rottweiler. Cohen and his twin brother have recently established a new business where individuals can post on-line portfolios and artist reels. Cohen was previously employed as an account executive in the advertising industry.
He notes that his friends and family have dubbed him "The Ultimate Salesman." Cohen received a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from the University of Arizona. His hobbies include going to movies, camping, surfing, snowboarding and film editing. His father is his hero because he admires all of the accomplishments he has had in his life and all the obstacles he endured to become the success that he is.
He describes himself as charismatic, spontaneous and caring. Cohen feels that he's a good candidate for SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because he's competitive, never quits, is a problem solver and someone who works extremely well under pressure.
