Shawn has always been driven by a passion for understanding how things work and finding ways to improve them. From a young age, he spent countless hours working on cars with his dad, building computers, bicycles, and more. Through his experiences, he developed the ability to take complex technical concepts and make them understandable to anyone. This skill has served him well as an adult, where he excels as a digital organizer. In his free time, Shawn is an avid reader and enjoys pottery, skateboarding, motorcycle riding, and surfing. His two favorite things, though, are his wife, Madeline, and baby boy, Nico, who he can’t get enough of.

Scotty has been involved in many roles; from Used Car Manager, to Apple Creative, and now Digital Organizer. And when he’s not helping businesses change their digital lives, Scotty is performing music around the country. Being that he’s worn a lot of hats, he understands there isn’t just one way for people to work. So as a Digital Organizer, Scotty is able to use those experiences to mold time-tested principles with the client’s unique way of working and find what’s best for them. When Scotty isn’t working, he’s probably watching baseball. Go Yanks!

THE ORIGINS

Started in 2013 by Shawn Lemon, The Digital Organizer partners with forward-thinking businesses to create streamlined, effective, and easy-to-use digital organization systems. It is our mission to empower people with the tools they need to supercharge their productivity so that they can get more of the right things done.

Shawn spent the early part of his career working as a Creative at Apple where he focused on training people how to use their products—whether it was a new computer or an app they had never used before. Throughout his nearly 7 years there, he began to see a pattern with his customers: day after day, in thousands of training sessions, people came with the same goals— to start fresh with a new device, learn how to use innovative software, and start creative projects. However, once people transferred their information onto their new Macs, their digital workspaces were a giant mess. What’s more, simple in-store training on how to use an app wasn’t enough to solve their problems. With that, Shawn began to realize that helping people clean up and organize their messy files, passwords, and emails required strategy, training, and a supportive “right hand.” And there was no one doing this work.

Seeing a need in the market motivated Shawn to begin moonlighting to help people get their Macs organized, in sync, and backed up. After some success, word spread quickly and Shawn needed to quit his job with Apple in order to keep up with the demand. And The Digital Organizer was born.

How our “Fail-Proof System” Evolved:

Over the years, Shawn’s work naturally evolved into something bigger; helping businesses and motivated individuals organize their entire digital workspace. With our team, we have been able to hone in on a fail-proof system that doesn’t just organize people’s workspaces for them, but partners with people to create digital lives that make sense for them and their businesses. This do-it-with-you system was developed using the lessons learned from countless sessions with clients and relentless research about what works and what doesn’t. Do you know the old adage about teaching a man to fish? Yeah, that’s our motto too.

Who we are

We love helping awesome people and great businesses get unstuck. We thrive on teaching you a new way to operate that frees you up to create with ease and find what you’re looking for instantly.

Who we are not

We're not a bunch of nerds who are just excited about software or organization systems. This process was born purely out of a necessity to get the organization out of the way so you can reduce stress, be more productive, and do more of what you love.

Our Values

Unyielding Integrity - We always do the right thing, even if it's hard.

Timeless Principles - We focus on teaching timeless principles of organization that can be used on today’s platforms and applied to the new as technology changes. Simplicity - We seek to make everyday tasks as easy and straightforward as possible.

Foward-Focused - At The Digital Organizer, we prioritize efficiency by focusing on what's relevant today and archiving historical content for future reference. This approach allows us to move through the organization process faster, while providing our clients with a simple and easy-to-use system that helps them stay productive in their current projects.

Constant Improvement - With eagerness we search out the latest information on neuroscience to understand how our brains work and how we can apply this understanding to create the best systems for our clients.
