About Me

UI/UX | WordPress | GraphicDesign | HTML/CSS

Welcome to my portfolio, here you will find my UI/UX | WordPress | GraphicDesign | 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 things work, whether it be a website or an app I’ve designed.

I try to focus on the users’ experience as much as possible by putting on my “user” cap when I design. While I have the skills for illustrating, web and mobile app design is where my passions lie.

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 boot camp at Montana Code School I also finished my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design at Montana State University I graduated from that program in December of 2021.

I am currently seeking employment in UI/UX | WordPress | GraphicDesign | HTML/CSS. I’ve also been toying with the idea of pursuing a Master’s in UX depending on what opportunities come my way.

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.”
