Shawn's little corner of the web. Shawn started designing
web sites in 1993, but got out of that when things got too
In addition to web sites, Shawn has
been been a tool developer in groups ranging from
diagnostics to databases, developing short-term and
long-term tools in various languages for years. Networking,
conversion, system and database administration, and
automation are just a few of the areas in which he has
written tools. See his résumé for
the gritty details. Shawn is currently a Scrum
Master and Agile Coach.
He's been married
for about 13 years now.
It was a 50s 'Grease' theme, but the Justice of the Peace
didn't have the right 'threads' for the gig, so we let him
be himself. Looks like Santa, plays Santa around Xmas time.
We had a wedding
reception, also a 50s theme. the
Wedding, and the
videos (considered funny by some) are on YouTube.
Didn't you used to be 'Duke'?
For 6 years in the Boston area, Shawn was a stand-up comic
by the name of
Duke Dodds. Besides being a good way to avoid creditors, alliteration was 'in vogue' at the time, so the name stuck. The act
of standing in front of a group and risking humiliation also improved his
'presentation skills', provided you don't mind a laugh
now and then.
Alas, he never got his 'big break', and decided to once again fully
dedicate his creativity to the business world.
