Shawn Arnwine

Fellow, Public Interest Technology

Shawn Arnwine is a Public Interest Technology Fellow at New America focused on foster care. He has spent the majority of his 17 year career supporting information technology projects across various federal agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of State, and Social Security Administration. Most recently, Arnwine served with the U.S. Digital Service at the Department of Veterans Affairs (DSVA), where he led the effort to run production systems in the cloud—a first at the VA. With a people-, process-, and policies-first approach, Arnwine strives to build relationships and implement solutions that satisfy short-term efforts and add value agency-wide.

Arnwine currently resides outside of Annapolis, Md., where he and his wife are constantly exhausted trying to keep up with their three-year old son.
