Founder and CEO
Shaun Oshman, founder of the company, arrived in Boulder in March of 2009. iSupportU was started as a company within 2 days of arriving in town. He found a great Schwinn cruiser and began providing IT support to clients on 2 wheels. The business was run out of a spare bedroom for the first year. In March of 2010, moved into a 500-square-foot space at 2232 Pearl Street with 3 other members of the iSupportU team. In April 2011, the team moved into the current 2,700-square-foot location at 1825 Pearl Street. As the man in charge, Shaun cultivates new business and steers the metaphorical boat.
Shaun grew up in the heart of New Jersey. After completing a BS in environmental science from Unity College in Maine, he rode his bicycle solo for 1,500 miles to settle in Iowa at an organic vegetable farm. His next calling was education, where he took on the role of Educational Services Director at a large YMCA camp in southern New Jersey. During this time, Shaun earned his MS in Education. In 2005, he moved to New Zealand, where he taught 7-9 year olds at a primary school in Wellington. In those 3 years, he acted as the IT administrator for this school and other Apple-based schools in the Wellington area.
Constantly striving towards striking a balance in life between friends, business and environmental ethics, Shaun’s free time is spent working to refine his backflip skills, skiing in the winter, gardening, cooking, reading, listening to podcasts, dancing to music, sailing, hiking, climbing and practicing capoeira.
