Hello, my name is Shane Montemayor and I grew up in Provo, Utah.
I have been fluent in American Sign Language for the past 10 years and have been interpreting since 2014.
One of the biggest influences to become an ASL/English interpreter was my deaf cousin, Keiko who lives in Okinawa, Japan.
We first met when I was twelve years old on my first vacation to visit my extended family; after returning to Utah I decided to learn sign language and immerse myself in the deaf community.
After developing a close relationship with those in the community, I decided to become an interpreter.
