Shawn is engaged in a dual career path, one that provides him with experience in student affairs/administration leadership and communications/marketing. Drawn to the transformative nature of student affairs, Shawn seeks to help students  actualize their potential and move towards self-authorship, the internal capacity to construct one's beliefs, identity, and social relations. In the student affairs field, Shawn has presented and facilitated workshops at the professional level on the topics of marketing/branding, leadership development, and sexual orientation and identity development for various organizations institutions, including the Human Rights Campaign, Iota Phi Theta® Fraternity, Inc., MACUHO New Jersey Housing Conference, and the NASAP Student Leadership Institute.

He also hosts a podcast called The Mindful Rebel. The podcast highlights #LeadershipfortheCulture with interviews of entrepreneurs, educators, creatives and more to bring attention to everyday leaders in the community and focus on their success strategies in leadership journey.

In between reading comics, checking out the latest movies, collecting FUNKO Pops (yes, he has a mad obsession), and an occasional round with his PS4, Shawn is  currently Associate Dean for Residential Education and Morehouse College. A quote that reflects Shawn’s professional mantra is a quote by John Buchan, "The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there."

The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.
