About Me

UI/UX | WordPress | Graphic Design | HTML/CSS

Welcome to my portfolio page, here you will find my UI/UX | WordPress | Graphic Design | HTML/CSS portfolio work. I love creating UI (user interface) and thinking about UX (user experience) in the things I create. I’m interested in making the things I create work, whether it be a website or a program I’ve designed. You can also check out my random thoughts on my blog.

I try to focus on the user experience as much as possible and put my user cap on as much as possible when I design. While I have the skills for illustrating, web and mobile app design is where my passions are.

In 2013 I helped Co-Found a startup called DropTrip which finally brought me to Bozeman in 2015 to work full time. Since then I’ve been learning the tools of my trade by completing a coding Bootcamp at Montana Code School as well as finishing out my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design at MSU which I will finish in the Fall of 2021.

After school I plan on seeking employment in UI/UX, I’ve also been toying with the idea of pursuing a Master’s in UX depending on what opportunities come up between now and graduation.

Why Work With Me

I like to think of myself as a Creative Problem Solver, you give me a set of problems to solve and I find a creative and effective way to give you an elegant well-designed product whether it’s a web page, logo, or app design.


My Work

Shawn was a pleasure to have on our team during his internship. Within a limited timeframe, he quickly dove into design tasks and saw larger projects to completion during the engagement. Shawn knows his toolset, what software to reach for, and the processes to employ when it comes to creative problem-solving.

Casey Ferguson - Vice President of Marketing, Zoot Enterprises

“Shawn is responsive, helpful and a self-starter. He helped us with a website redesign and not only came to the table with good ideas but was fast working and on schedule. Even though the project is complete, Shawn is still helpful and willing to answer questions.”

Sara Crow – Marketing Manager, CrossTx

“Shawn is a superb designer and developer. Not only is he able to come up with a very esthetic and user-friendly layout, he is able to construct it with the necessary web development tools. He would be a twofold asset to any company.”

Nicholas Marucci – Instructor, Montana Code School

“Shawn had a solid foundation in UI/UX design that proved to be very useful come course projects. His ability to charge forward into the realm of programming, further displayed his capacity to be highly trainable, as well as eager to learn. I believe he would make a great addition to any team.”

Lauren Nichols – Teaching Assistant, Montana Code School

“Shawn has been quite helpful as a co-founder of DropTrip. He is completely committed to its success and works to improve his skills and abilities on a regular basis to make that happen. He stays focused on the task at hand and clearly never stops thinking about the challenges we face and how to solve them. He is willing to jump in wherever needed.”
