After graduating with a BA in Social Work in 2008 Shane worked directly with people in marginalized communities exiting homelessness and incarceration.

He quickly transitioned to more technical roles until he was the Regional Manager for the national tech non-profit Socialserve.com. His passion for improving user experience and web accessibility then took him to working as a freelance web developer in 2014.

After shipping a handful of web products for various clients, Shane sought out a role that would fulfill his desire to amplify marginalized voices and advocate for social equity and inclusion. He found a perfect fit in GLAAD. He continues to grow as a developer while fighting to make the world a more empathetic, inclusive, and loving environment.
