About Me

I'm Josiah. I like bringing order to chaos, discovering new ideas, telling interesting stories, learning new things, and roller coasters.

I like design because it's a fascinating train-wreck of art and science. The poetic and the pragmatic. Sets of rules and organic creativity.

Want to know more about me or drop me a message? Say hi.
