Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate.

Post-graduation, while working in the compliance department at ICE Futures US on the former NYBOT trading floor, he was exposed to agricultural commodity markets. Shawn then spent six years prop trading in the Coffee and Cocoa options markets for DRW Commodities before joining the physical trade here at ACT. Shawn now focusses on RINs and Biodiesel for the US fuels desk.
