My name is Shane Pachiodo.

I’ve told 8 stories. I joined Cowbird on February 1, 2014.

I graduated from the University of Hartford in 2011, with a BFA in creative writing, my senior portfolio was an eighty page compilation of short stories, poetry, and also featured various interviews I compiled on college literary magazines. I'm still searching for my dream job, but in the mean time I work at a book store which comes close to fitting that mold I'm seeking. I dabble around with mostly short story writing, prose, and poetry all derived from life experiences. I am hoping to begin a novel soon regarding the life of a transgender man, the tribulations that come along with it, the struggles along the way, and finally the peace one finds when connected to one's body and sexuality. I am an online advocate for LGBT people, and at this current time am most interested in writing on the subject. I am forever a New Englander at heart and I get a great deal of inspiration from spending time outdoors.
