Shawn found his calling in carpentry and construction while taking up side jobs during his days off from being an optician. As a side note, Shawn was also a lead singer in a heavy metal band in his youth and sang at weddings as another side gig. But working with his hands and being out in the field of construction was more in line with what he wanted in life, so Shawn made the career switch from lab coat to tool belt in his early twenties and has been in the construction industry ever since.
As a former member of the Construction Union, Shawn developed a high level of education and experience. Originally from southern Illinois, Shawn moved to Miami to start working with McKenzie Construction and has been a rocking Superintendent!
