Shane White


Shane’s passion for The Match Artist started when Nick shot some photos of Shane and suggested he upload them to his Tinder profile. Many dates later, he had a girlfriend and thought online dating photos could be helpful to other guys. In addition to being full time at The Match Artist, Shane is also the founder of a software company and a popular wedding DJ company. He enjoys piloting his plane and spending time with his wife.
