Hello—I'm Joe 👨🏻💻
I'm a product designer working in tech. I work with cross-functional collaborators to create thoughtful user experiences. I'm a realist and a dreamer focused on designing responsible solutions that genuinely improve lives. Welcome to my microsite.

Updated December 21, 2021
My partner and I are opening a dance studio in Central Florida! It’s been a privilege to work on this business with her. Opening a physical business presents all sorts of unfamiliar challenges—but we are learning so much!
I'm making this microsite to replace my previous website, because I realized that less is better here, too. More links will be active soon.
I recently started using Typefully to schedule content on Twitter, and I'm in love with this tool. If you're interested, use my affiliate link to get started!

Designers are uniquely positioned to influence other people’s lives and shape our society. Therefore, good design must be responsible and thoughtful. In creating user experiences, I focus on delivering world-class, accessible solutions crafted for long-term, positive social impact.
What I'm supporting
I believe I have a responsibility to promote and empower the people doing society's most impactful work. I'm privileged to be able to redirect 2% of my monthly income to an array of organizations whose work I value. Each month I choose a mix from the following:
Reads in 2021
Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner? → This really helped stretch my understanding of the patriarchy, and it challenged a ton of my assumptions about money and socioeconomics.
Company of One → Lots to learn from this one about solopreneurship and individual skill growth. Nice read for the entrepreneurially-inclined.
Choose FI → Loved this podcast so was eager to check this out. Lots of valuable frameworks for thinking about personal finance.
Dollars and Sense → Great read about the psychology of money. Formatted as a series of brief, story-like case studies, each paired with an analysis of the character's financial decision-making.
My partner and I own and operate a small dance studio in central Florida. We're learning a ton from building this business!
