Behind the Vision

Meet The Founder

Shawn Norris brings a unique blend of personal and professional expertise to the world of language services. As President of the Florida Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (FRID) and COO of AI Deaf, Shawn’s work is deeply informed by his own experiences. Growing up with Deaf parents, he developed an intimate understanding of the Deaf community’s needs, fueling his passion for advocacy and volunteerism.

With over fifteen years in the field, Shawn’s journey in interpreting has been marked by a commitment to mentorship and community engagement. He established a local agency in Jacksonville to offer ASL and Spanish interpreting services, significantly enhancing language accessibility in the area.

Shawn’s expertise is also recognized on larger stages. His roles as a Commissioner for the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) and as a member of the SAFE-AI Task Force exemplify his dedication to elevating the interpreting profession and ensuring ethical practices in AI. His multifaceted life experiences, combined with his professional acumen, make him an ideal leader in creating an online community tailored for interpreters, translators, and language enthusiasts.

When Shawn steps away from the world of language services, you’ll find him spending quality time with his wife and two sons, chasing after his stubborn English bulldog, or rooting for his favorite football team.
