As Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, LaShawn uses her skills in media and production to oversee all technology functions at Revry including handling channel launches, deliverables management, and tech quality control. After leaving a nine-year nursing career with the United States Army, LaShawn dedicated herself to the art of storytelling by graduating from The American Film Institute (AFI) with a master’s degree in film editing. Since graduating, LaShawn has worked on film, television, and documentary projects as an editor, assistant editor, and producer. Previously involved in Ava Duvernay’s ARRAY film movement and a regular juror and panelist at events such as Outfest and the American Film Market (AFM), LaShawn brings her experience of working on feature films (Selma, The Leisure Class) and broadcast television (Girl Rising, A Chance to Dance) to Revry. Her technical skills are matched only by her passion for sharing the unique voices and stories of the LBGTQ+ community with the widest audiences possible. LaShawn was also integral in Revry’s selection as a member of the inaugural Goldman Sachs Launch with GS Black and Latinx Entrepreneur Cohort.
LaShawn has also been recognized as a Titan of Media in Out Magazines Out100, LA Confidential's Portraits of Pride, and recipient of the Melissa Etheridge Award and the Rainbow Key Award from the City of West Hollywood and the Lesbian and Gay Advisory Council and a member of the GLAAD Advisory Board for Equity in Media and Entertainment.
