Shawn has been a Code Enforcement Officer in South Carolina for 3 years. Before that, he worked in a variety of different industries, including auto sales, restaurant/hotels management, and insurance sales. He's originally from New York so adjusting to life in the south has been a humorous and eye opening experience (even though he's been in the south for 21 years now). Shawn's on-the-job experiences can range from humorous to downright crazy. He's been attacked, screamed at and called every name in the book by unruly code violators. Known around the office as "James Brown," due to his striking hairdo, Shawn tries to incorporate his humor and larger-than-life personality into his encounters with the public whenever possible. But, when the situation calls for muscle, this 6'2, 250lb code enforcement officer can certainly defend himself.
