Strategic, dependable, and always counted on to deliver, Shawn is a strong design team leader who enjoys collaboration with all design partners. He has 22 years of experience in technical and architectural design practice, and he’s spent the last ten years focusing his attention on airport design.
As senior designer for the Pearson Airport Terminal 3 Enhancements project, Shawn worked to take an older, extant facility—designed to mid-1980s standards—and renovate it. He and his team worked on everything from check in to security to where airport revenue streams come from. What Shawn enjoys most is working the constraints and technical inputs into a solution that sings.
Shawn believes that ideas come from all directions, and that people need to be open and curious about other people’s experiences and insights. He’s also a singer songwriter. He dabbled in music when he was younger, but over the past ten years or so, he’s returned to it with a passion.
