Hi there! I’m Joe, a human-centered product designer with backgrounds in engineering and contemporary art passionately focused on creating empathetic objects and experiences in a wide range of fields. I received my Master’s degree in Engineering Design Innovation at Northwestern University, where I also received my Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.
I dive deep into developing creative solutions to problems, fabricating high-quality prototypes, and uncovering the emotional impact of good design. Empathy is the foundation of everything I create, be it a medical device that instills comfort in its user, an art installation that evokes emotion in its viewers, or an educational tool that gives the student confidence.
I draw upon a wide range of interests to inform my practice and keep me grounded. Whether it's listening to new (or old) music, watching odd films, or creating and viewing artwork, I believe in constantly surrounding myself with inspiration t0 fuel my practice.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions about my work, or just to say hi!
