Hello, I’m Shaun.

I’m an interface designer focused on the open source WordPress software. Since 2011, I’ve work at Automattic, the the company behind WordPress.com, Tumblr, WooCommerce, Jetpack, Simplenote, Akismet and more.

  • …created XHTMLGenius.com offering rapid creation of standards-compliant HTML and CSS websites and templates.
  • …worked at a design agency in Miami, helping global brands bring their messages online for the first time in the early 2000’s.
  • …helped to manage the website for Alienware, a gaming-focused computer manufacturer now owned by Dell.
