Never Be Closing
About Joe. I live in Seattle, but I’m from Omaha, Nebraska. I see more movies in the theater than anyone I know. I love Taco Bell.
I tend to think of design as the most personal of things: a way of reaching goals, making decisions, managing relationships, communicating, learning — just negotiating our everyday lives. I’ve had some fun as a graphic designer, but many of the most satisfying moments of my life have been as a teacher, watching students learn new things about themselves and each other in the midst of the design process.
I have a Master of Design degree from the University of Washington, where I’m currently teaching Color & Composition (DES 210). I also teach digital literacy classes to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders at Charles Wright Academy. Some day, I’d like to work for LEGO Education.
