Joseph is a great communicator! He was always super fast at responding and did exactly what I asked of him! He even gave me advice about the content I was producing and how to organize it in the best way possible. He helped me design an awesome email, with graphics, photos, color coordination, and more. He also helped me with pop ups for my website. I will definitely be reaching out to him in the future!

What I read

I subscribe to a blog called Sidebar.io that sends me 5 great design articles daily, as well as read a lot of articles on Vox Media, Vice, and Digg. I'm also very interested in gaming, and follow blogs such as Kotaku, Lifehacker and Engadget.

Side projects

In the past, I have started a not-for-profit organization called One Big Movement, where we empower students in fighting child poverty. I have also worked in a number of startups, including a digital media agency, eCommerce business and app development..

Ideal team

I enjoy working in small teams of under 5-6 people as it provides me with the freedom to think outside the box and do more than what's required. I'm not afraid to ask questions, and enjoy a management style where I can take ownership of a project.
