Shawn began his career in educational software in 1987, starting as a graphic designer for an award winning pre-school alphabet game. In late-1993 through late 1994, he managed the creative services department for an acclaimed Ancient Hebrew courseware product; the first full-year post-secondary computer-managed-instruction course ever to be accredited by colleges, universities and seminaries around North America.
In the latter half of the 1990s, Shawn went to work in entertainment software, including Chess, Horror & Casino games and Mapping & Genealogy applications. Shawn’s first experience with web design came in 1997, when he was the only one on his team to raise his hand as a volunteer to build a web site for the chess title. He’s been involved with online marketing ever since.
By late 1999, Shawn wanted to settle down with Tanya, his fiancee, and found a position working for a small Port Angeles internet design & marketing company in mid-2000. Shawn and Tanya purchased the former home and some of the dairy farm acreage of Tanya’s grandparents in Sequim and were married there in September of 2000.
When away from the glow of a computer monitor, Shawn & Tanya enjoy playing with their four dogs & three cats, tending their orchard & garden, raising chickens, sharing in the never-ending maintenance of & improvements to their 80+ year old farmhouse, traveling, and hiking. On those rare moments alone, Shawn enjoys writing fiction, sketching, collecting music and reading everything from philosophy to comic books.
