About Shawn

Shawn makes things!
This site exists to document those things.

During the day, he makes PHP applications for Vanderbilt Medical Center, with a smattering of Javascript, API design, and various other backend things.

At night, he builds whatever comes to mind. Recent projects include a multiplayer word-based party game, a slot machine designed with Unity (built from scraps of an old desk), and even this website.

Located just south of Nashville, Shawn lives with his wife, dog, and looming omnipresent digital oversight. (Alexandria, Echo, and Alexa - respectively)



Fast-paced word game for 2-8 players. Built in Unity with a Node.js and websocket backend to allow player input from mobile devices.
