As a child Shannon lived in both Los Angeles and Hong Kong until settling back in the LA area in 1974. In 1987, Shannon moved to New Orleans where she attended Tulane University. Here she earned a B.F.A. in vocal performance, and appeared in numerous musicals, operas, and choral concerts. Currently, Shannon is the CEO of the Bruce Lee Family Companies and Chairperson of the Board of Directors for the Bruce Lee Foundation (a California 501(c)(3) public charity). Shannon also writes, speaks on her father's philosophies, and still sings occasionally.
