WorkAbout
I'm Shawn.

I am an Idaho based designer specializing in User Experience, accessibilty, and typography. I studied design at The Art Institute and I am currently employed at Lenovo.

When I am not obsessing about design you can find me drooling over motorcycles, music, photography, fitness, outdoors, gardening and simply working with my hands. Everything from changing a head gasket on my motorcycle to growing a new vegetable in the garden.

Feel free to contact me through email or social media.

My life isn't always about work, see what weird things I am up to on Instagram or you can connect with me professionally on LinkedIn.
