Born in March 1981 Shipton’s childhood was spent in a number of different places around Wyoming. Indeed, alongside his parents Roger and Claudia Shipton, the youngster moved from Lander to Fort Washakie, before relocating to Alaska. From there, he eventually headed back to his home state, moving to the city of Casper.

As a child, Shipton loved the great outdoors, which, in a way, foreshadowed his future career choice. Before that, though, he studied at Casper’s Natrona County High School, eventually graduating in 1999. At that point, the teenager looked to continue his education at college.
