about me.


Hello. My name is Shawn McKee. I’m a mobile software developer and architect. Founder of Durable Brand Software.

I am an experienced developer with a focus on developing quality user experiences on mobile devices. I have contributed to, or led the development of, a wide range of projects from health and insurance apps to social and consumer media.

My primary skills are in creating native iOS and Android apps, with additional experience in technologies like React Native and JavaScript.

I am comfortable with both leading and guiding development teams as well as contributing as one of their members. I love working and thinking with product and design teams to integrate the best UX and feature sets with the underlying technology.

I started Durable Brand Software as a place to develop my own apps and to work on my skills between projects. I freelance through Durable Brand or as an independent contractor. For the past 8+ years I’ve had the privilege of providing mobile development work primarily through the smart folks at Blue Rocket.
