Shanna McCullough (born April 1, 1960)[2] is an American pornographic actress.

Early life[edit]

She grew up in the San Francisco Bay area.[3] At school she was involved with the theatre group, and acted in drama and musicals.[3] She went to college and received a degree in accounting.[3] Then she worked as an electrician for two years, and also as a veterinary technician.[3]

Career[edit]

After starting to work in porn, she also performed as a dancer in nightclubs.[3] During a break from the business she also worked as a stripper and went back to school to study zoology, with the aim of working in the animal health care field.[3] In 1999 wired.com reported that Shanna was operating a website giving members 24 hour access to multiple webcams installed in her home.[4] As of March 2009, the website appears to have ceased operating. In March 2008, she walked the Los Angeles Marathon.[5] Dave Cummings has said Shanna was one of the actresses he most enjoyed working with.[6]

In a 2014 interview with The Rialto Report, McCullough said she picked her stage name as it sounded like her grandmother's last name. She also professed to have had a fairly "normal upbringing" and that she did well in school.[7] In the interview, she clarified how her name "McCullough" is pronounced ("-lough" should be articulated "-low" rather "-off"). She is of English, French, German, Irish and Swiss descent.[1][7]
