Shadrick graduated with a Bachelor of Science in graphic design from Elizabeth City State University and went on to complete his graduate studies at NC State College of Design. During his graduate studies, he worked on numerous projects covering immersive mixed reality systems, user experience, user interface, and interaction design. His master's thesis focused on the implementation of mixed reality systems in historic house museums.

His research interest explores how designers can leverage extended reality (XR) systems to recreate historical experiences, encourage empathy, and facilitate social interaction in educational and cultural environments.
