I'm Shawn.

I am a creative director, designer, and filmmaker based in Vancouver, Canada. I work in all mediums with experience in graphic design, film, interactive design, and product design. No matter the format, I solve business problems with strategic innovation, design, and storytelling.

I get excited about working with diverse teams of great people to explore possibilities and make awesome things. I provide leadership to grow the creative confidence and capabilities of the people I work with. I've been a member of small in-house creative teams that scaled up to create a big impact by pushing the boundaries of what is possible. 

I work freelance with forward-thinking clients and create new brands with my independent creative company, MAKE TODAY. In the past I have led creative projects at Destination British Columbia, Hootsuite, and Vancouver 2010.
