Hi there, I’m Joe

A front-end engineer and interaction designer interested in accessibility.

Design and technology make a great pairing — luckily, I have a background in both. Currently a Software Engineer working at HubSpot on Canvas — their in-house design system.

Below are some of my case studies. You can also learn more about me below or take a look at my résumé.

A little about myself

Designer. Developer. Creative.

Starting out as a developer, I quickly found a passion and love for design and building amazing experiences. I’ve since grown these two skillsets and activley seek opportunities to work at the intersection of these disciplines.

I’m originally from Northern Virginia, and moved to Boston to attend Northeastern University. I’ll be graduating in May 2020, and joining HubSpot as a Software Engineer afterward.

What makes me a person

Some of my interests and the fun stuff.

One of my greatest strengths is a continual drive to seek out knowledge to develop my existing skills. Whether it be in my personal or professional life, I always try to learn as much as I can from every experience.

In my spare time I enjoy photography , video games (Smash Bros. Ultimate, anyone?), and finding new horror movies to watch .

Experiences that helped me grow

Where have I worked.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to work for a variety of great companies in both design and engineering roles. For more information, view my full résumé.
