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 about design as the most personal of things: a way of reaching goals, making decisions, managing relationships, communicating — 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 now teaching a few classes. Soon, I’m hoping to also teach design and digital literacy to middle schoolers somewhere in Seattle. Some day, I’d like to work for LEGO. More resume stuff here.
