About

Shawn J: a self-recipe.

1) Take equal parts professional, academic, fanboy, and off-the-clock

2) Season with a curious nature, believe in hard work, team effort, and a passion for public service

3) Marinate with a servant leader philosophy, an appreciation for field work, being a mentor and learning from a mentor, and experiences living and working in multiple countries,

4) Simmer a few decades and voila!
