About Me.

Hi, I'm Joshua


I'm studying Computational Media (specialized in Media and Interaction Design) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The CM program allows me to explore both art and technology, as well as concepts such as HCI, AI, and Digital Media.

I'm also a creator. It's really important to me that I am creating new things, and I enjoy working with a diverse team to bring innovative concepts to life.

In my off time I enjoy playing soccer, drawing comics, and spending time with family.

Voice Assistant Project

Designed a voice assistant for the future of college campuses. This required us to conducted multiple stages of user research and usability testing to better understand the design space. This resulted in us exploring the nature of “studying”, because me and my design team viewed it as an essential element of college life, and a space that has the potential for substantial growth through the combination of voice interaction and education technology.
