Hi, I’m Shawn.

My passion is capturing the people and places of the Pacific Northwest in their natural state; otherworldly, beautiful, eccentric. An artist by trade, my work can be found in publications and galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest.

As a dedicated creative professional, inspired business solutions and communications are my greatest drive. I strive to create content that helps brands and businesses connect with their audiences through both rich media and engaging social channels.

Over the past six years, I have worked closely with clients like Darigold, MOD Pizza, American Express, Business Insider, AMEX, Qdoba, Evergreens, Blacklight Run, and Urban Pie to provide high-quality commercial marketing assets and materials.

I take great pride in my work with a keen eye for detail, color, composition, and realism. As a working creative, I find joy in solving visual problems to deliver outstanding content, both on time and within budget.

Thank you for taking the time to view life from my perspective.
