As a student of behavioral psychology, he has also done research into understanding alcohol’s effect on bartenders and their patrons using an emphasis on group dynamics. In the past six years, Shawn has personally instructed over two thousand people in the art of bartending, and has trained a bartender resident in almost every bar in San Francisco.
