Freelance UX Content Designer in Stockholm, He/him
I'm looking to join an ambitious design team to help solve problems with copy and content.
If you need a hands-on ux writer or an interim manager for your team, please reach out. I'd love to say hi and learn more about your product or service.
I'm Joe, a New Yorker living in Sweden with my wife and two daughters.
I've spent the last decade designing content and leading teams for technology companies.
Now I run my own studio and I’m open for contract work — either hands-on ux writing for your product or stepping in as a design manager to provide (fractional) leadership and support daily operations.
For fun? I'm either riding my bike or planning family excursions in the forest.
