Shawn – IT Specialist
Shawn has been working with computers since 1992. As a kid he would get his dad’s old computers to tinker with. He was 12 or 13 when he really started to take interest and realized he was excelling at working with computers and technology. Naturally he would go to UCF for a degree in Engineering Technology, where he met James. He loves working at Firewall because every day he is presented new challenges. He also enjoys being able to help people make technology work for them. His favorite pastime is disassembling electronics to see how the work and spending time with his twin boys.
