My name is Joseph. I am a professional creative person. When not writing and illustrating picture books, like The Digger & the Flower, I focus my time and energy on more entrepreneurial pursuits, like Digger & Co., Being, The Big Know and Hum. 

I’m fluent in brand, design, digital product and ecosystems, marketing, creative and strategy. I live and work in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, United States with my family.
