BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

SHAWN CARMODY Service team lead

Origami Risk LLC


Shawn Carmody began his career in consulting but became interested in the product buildout aspect of insurance, leading him to a position with Origami Risk. When he’s not working with the software company’s product and sales teams, he can be found biking and teaching his 2- and 4-year-old children the University of Iowa fight song.

What is the biggest challenge of working through the pandemic?

It is the work-life sanity balance. It’s easy to get pulled into things when you don’t have that separation between your office and your house. And at the end of the day, I walk right out into the craziness that a 2- and 4-year-old can create and it makes it a little draining. But everyone’s dealing with it, regardless of family situation.

How will your work change going forward?

We really like to bring our service team in and go through the next level of detail before we go into a statement of work. When are we going to travel again? How many people are really going to be moving back into the office? You think you can do a lot of things virtually, but sometimes it is so much easier … to see if someone is understanding what I’m talking about based on their nonverbals.

What do you know now that you wish you knew at 18?

Understand that you are always going to be learning. Especially when it comes to soft skills.

What is something about you that would surprise people?

Despite being an engineer at heart, I was in show choir in college. It’s one of those nice outlets.

What is your favorite meal?

Probably breakfast. I’m such an Iowan at heart. I’m a huge fan of breakfast for dinner. Eggs and bacon, maybe a little toast, some hash browns. Bacon makes everything better.
