Josh is a crossbreed – a designer, a strategist and a sustainability advocate – interested in tackling complex urban environmental challenges. He’s a creative problem solver, a storyteller, and a collaborator, and believes very strongly that all of those skills are critical to creating change. He studied industrial design at UID in Sweden and received his Masters in Design for Social Innovation at SVA in New York.
Most recently, he’s been working at the intersection of design and sustainability: He helped re-brand a revolutionary sustainable materials company (Ecovative); Directed design for a start-up composting company (NYCOMPOST); Designed low-cost, ergonomic farm tools for smallholder farmers in India (with Design Impact); And founded the Salvage Supperclub, a communal dining experience aimed at reducing food waste by exciting guests about the untapped potential in often-overlooked foods. When there’s time to spare, you can also find him running, biking and taking pictures.
