Welcome, Shaun!


Shaun SinticIntroducing Shaun Sintic, Coordinator, Owned & Operated

My name is Shaun Sintic, I’m from Denville, New Jersey and I’m a member of the Owned & Operated team. I spend the majority of my free time either playing in my band, Basement Beers, or watching Parks and Recreation reruns.

Currently I’m listening to PWR BTTM, Jank, and Hop Along, who all put out phenomenal records last year. If you want to talk about Kevin James, I’m your man. I also take care of seven cats that were born outside my house, so if you are interested in a kitten, I may have one for you.
