Hi there, I'm Josh! 👋
A little about me...
Hi! I'm Josh, a UX Designer II at PlayStation based in the San Francisco Bay Area!
Before I landed at PlayStation, I was the Design Lead for Internet Brands' Health Vertical, creating elegant yet functional experiences for amazing companies like WebMD and Demandforce.
Growing up, I always loved connecting with new people, traveling the world, and making people smile. Thus, I naturally leaned towards the interdisciplinary sciences and health field. I shadowed two dentists, clocked in 600+ hours at John Muir Medical Center as the Student Volunteer Supervisor, and was a Medical-Surgical & ICU intern at Sutter Davis Hospital. This all changed when I came across an article on Flipboard about “usability” and “empathy” in the production of user-centered apps.
My passion for Cognitive Science met my zeal for Product Design, leading me to devour everything related to Product (UI/UX) Design and eventually develop my own eye for design through projects and learnings. All my hard work came to fruition when I graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Cognitive Science with emphases in Neuroscience and Design (HCI) and a minor in Psychology! My unique background in Cognitive Science and UX coupled with my keen understanding of users and empathy-driven approach allow me to solve problems and design solutions in a holistic way.
