Husband, father and natural born entrepreneur.
Shawn started his first two businesses at the age of twenty-one while completing his engineering degree.
Now 34 years old, Shawn is the owner and director of four businesses with over a hundred staff members.
Like with all success, it has come with much heartache and challenges that can only be overcome through sheer determination, an unfailing commitment and some realistic optimism.
One of the most influential moments in Shawn’s career was when his confidant and mentor passed away after a short illness. Many lessons learned through both failure and success define who Shawn is today.
Other than business and entrepreneurship, food, travel and family have always been the cornerstone to Shawn’s focus and passion.
