my name is josh, and i like to make things that are simple and useful.
i love organization and order, and finding simple solutions to complex problems. i like to make things that fit exactly where they belong and work exactly how they're supposed to.
I graduated from design school in 2008. After that I worked at an agency doing Flash websites for six months, then spent a year at a small software startup doing design, front-end development, video, print, etc. before landing at the Fortune 100 hardware giant, Lowe's where I was an interaction designer on the eCommerce team for 3 years. I had a brief stint at TIAA-CREF as a visual designer on the new UX team.
In February of 2014, I moved to Ally Financial as a senior information architect on the UX team, doing wireframes and prototypes for auto, investing, banking, and insurance products. I also spent a few months as an inaugural team member at Ally’s innovation lab, TM Studio.
In August of 2018 I started my current role as Design Ops Lead at Ally, managing the design system and style guide, facilitating cross-team collaboration, and continually refining processes and tools to help the UX team work as effectively and consistently as possible.
let’s work together or grab a cup of coffee.
