User Researcher + Designer

Hi, I'm Josh.

I believe in creating meaningful impact through the application of technology and design.

I'm currently a senior majoring in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Whether I'm working as an artist, industrial designer, or social entrepreneur, I think real solutions come from real empathy with the user. Whether the best solution happens to be a product, architecture, or mobile app, understanding the physical, virtual, and social systems behind something is crucial to effecting change, my guiding principle throughout my practices.

In my free time, I love to design furniture, create poetry about my social & technological environment, and 3D print mazes for my slime mold.
