About Josh

Military brat, 2nd generation immigrant, spam purveyor. We're complex, so I design from the margins.

Eating on a picnic bench in a Hawaiian public park with chicken strolling nearby.

I grew up in the 808. I'm still fond of a rice plate with chicken in the park.

My Principles

I'm stubbornly aligned with these quotes. They've helped me grow as a designer and a human being.

  • Make mistakes, but also make real amends.

    Elizabeth (Dori) Tunstall, Decolonizing Design
  • Relationships are everything. Move at the speed of trust.

    adrienne maree brown, Emergent Strategy
  • The best interface is no interface.
