Hi, I'm Shannon.
I'm a native of West Virginia, but have called New York City home for 19 years. By day, I'm a User Experience (UX) designer with Claraview, a division of Teradata. By night, I'm the lead singer for country band, Trailer Radio. And on weekends I design jewelry that I sell on Etsy under the name Glamourbilly Designs. I guess you could say I burn the candle at both ends.
I think calling someone "A Creative" is kind of goofy and a little pretentious. But that's what I do; I create things, and try to make them beautiful. Whether it's a financial dashboard, a mobile app, a necklace or a country song, I strive to make it lovely.
On the flip side, I have an entrepreneurial spirit. For 15 years I ran my own boutique web design studio, Shannon Brown Web Design, LLC. Like most small business owners I did the designing, the HTML coding, the marketing, the sales, the book-keeping, the contract writing, and everything else right down to the dishwashing! It was a challenge, but I loved being a small business owner. I always have a few new businesses rolling around in my brain.
My side projects are constantly evolving and changing. Right now my focus is on my band Trailer Radio, which just released an album last spring. Another is my jewelry business, Glamourbilly Designs where I upcycle vintage pieces into new styles. It's a very eco-friendly line, some of which is a little kitschy.
