Robbie Shawn

Hi Everyone! I’m Robbie.

I was originally born and raised in the Tampa Bay Area in Florida, until 2010 when I migrated to San Diego California. I’m a full-time single father to 2 kids, Dylan and Lizabelle. Dylan is 16 and Lizabelle is 7. When I’m not working, I enjoy being active with the kids. You’ll often find us paddle boarding, hiking, fishing, or zipping around town on our electric scooters.

My true hobby is technology, and I’m fortunate enough to of made a career out of something I’m so passionate about. From age 6 when my father bought his first computer, I was amazed, and curious to learn more. After high school, I got into the advertising industry. In 2010 after moving to San Diego, I began working in the e-commerce industry. I quickly excelled, and continue to enjoy and prosper in my career, while also having the opportunity to help many brands evolve in the ever-changing digital world.

In 2010, I began doing consulting work, and later started Hoot Commerce, a digital agency that helps businesses with Amazon, e-commerce, advertising, and SEO services. While I continue to do freelance work, I am currently employed full time, and limit new projects to small projects that don’t require much time to complete. Regardless if I can take on your project, I would love to hear about it, and at a minimum offer some free advice, so contact me!
