Hi! I’m Joshua. I’m a technologist, an artist, and an animist. I believe the crises we face today are symptoms of deeper wounds and disconnection, individual and collective, which need to be healed. I frequently ask the question “How do I be a good ancestor?” Sometimes I write.
Qntfy – As Director of Product at Qntfy, I’m guiding our team to build technology and products with the greatest possible impact on personal and collective wellbeing. I’m passionate about using science and technology to help us ground, notice the present, learn more about ourselves, and connect. I’m proud of our track record in providing key insights to decision makers working to improve mental health for impacted populations and individuals.

Catharsis on the Mall – As a curator, core organizer and board member, I helped bring this 48 hour vigil to the National Mall annually from 2015 – 2020. Featuring art, music, workshops, speakers, a temple burn and thousands of participants, Catharsis heals and transforms ourselves, our culture and our communities through radical direct experience.
SunCatcher Greenhouses – I managed the strategy, sales and digital for SunCatcher Greenhouses, my family’s passive solar design and consulting business, from 2014 – 2020. My family has been involved in energy efficient building design, particularly in the agricultural space, since the late 1970’s. I’ve been involved on and off in passive solar projects and the business since 2001.
The Data Guild – I’ve did freelance projects with the Data Guild for a couple of years from 2014-2016. We worked with clients including Fortune 500 companies, startups and non-profits across healthcare, energy efficiency, marketing, fraud detection, and other spaces. I specialize in figuring out how to get the data products we build into the hands of real people who will use them – from the user interaction flow to the actual engineering of integrating with client systems. It’s fun, I learn a lot, and it’s different every time.
