Hey, I'm Josh. I build cross‐functional relationships to enable inclusive and holistic experiences for customers.

My head floating in the Blue Lagoon of Iceland.

My heart is at the intersection of Brand and Product.

Currently, I'm a Design System Lead at Netflix. Most recently, I was co-creator of Encore, the Spotify Design System and focused my time on Web technology products. Encore is a family of Design Systems rooted in audience agnostic foundations that support anyone in the business.

My expertise is in centralizing design at scale through foundational frameworks. By focusing on the foundations or common primitives, I’ve found that a majority of the business is able to build local, cohesive extensions of the brand. It’s not just up to the system team, scaling a system requires a commitment from the business and an inclusive culture to empower and celebrate all co-authors of the system.

Unrelated to work, I enjoy creating bizarre illustrations when our dog, Sully, isn’t crying for attention. These have influenced my tattoo collection which has a general theme of nature and death. When I’m not whisper screaming metal at my desk, my wife and I are checking off cities around the world. Where are you looking to travel to next?
