Choosing the right approach for your needs.

Web Development

Whether you're looking for a simple, beautiful home page or blog, or an app with a busy backend, I can build it for you.

Mobile Development

Got a cool idea for an app? Let's make it a reality. I can build you a native Android app, or a light-weight, cross-platform app using PhoneGap.


I started out as a data scientist, and I still enjoy answering questions with data. I can help you formulate questions, collect data, and analyze the results.


I find it strangely delightful to fix other people's broken code. Send me what you've got and I'll work out the kinks - or tell you if we're better off starting from scratch.


Looking to build your skillset? Want to handle some of your tech needs in house? Whether it's a quick explanation of how a server works or a formal tutorial or pairing session, I'm glad to help you grow.


Hi. I'm Shauna.

I develop websites and mobile apps for individuals and small organizations. Have an idea for a site or app you want to pilot? Need a homepage for your business or brand? Never worked with a developer before, or have a bunch of old code or unprocessed data you don't know how to salvage?

Don't worry, I've got you covered. I've been a writer and a teacher even longer than I've been a developer. I enjoy helping clients figure out what their needs are.

Community Discount

Free and open source software is close to my heart, as is social justice. I offer significant discounts to community organizations and to clients who'll share the work I do with an open license.

What Clients Say

"I highly recommend working with Shauna Gordon-McKeon at Galaxy Rise. When I had a hard time articulating the layout and aesthetics I wanted, Shauna used the right questions and examples to systematically draw out my preferences, then quickly delivered a draft that looked great. Shauna demonstrated unerringly reliable follow-through, skill, and an unflappable honesty. I owe my awesome launch to Galaxy Rise." ~ Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset Consulting
