Having worked together since teenagers, Shannon and his partner Jason Hopley founded The Grogs puppet company troupe in 1994. Shannon had first developed the idea for The Grogs while traveling in Europe and seeing the prominent place puppets have in street theater. He and Hopley then developed the puppets for children's birthday parties.

Shannon voiced three-year-old Mona in the television series, Nanalan'. He is also known as the voices of 16-year-old Josh in Mr. Meaty and as Swami Jeff in Swami Jeff's Temple of Wisdom.

Shannon is co-creator of Mr. Meaty, along with Jason Hopley. As puppeteers, Shannon and Hopley also created all of the 'Mr. Meaty' puppets, from inception through construction to the final puppet characters.

Shannon's and Hopley's monkey puppets named Ooh and Aah began in early April 2007 as the new hosts of Playhouse Disney.

In the "Nicktoons" official website, in the Mr. Meaty videos section, there is a "Nick Extra!" where Jamie and Jason show you how to make your very own Mr. Meaty puppet.
