Joseph is the sole employee of Ludamus Games. He is a graphic designer with a strong passion for board game design. He also helps run the non-profit playtesting community, Break My Game, and sits on the Board of Directors.

Joseph holds a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts, with a focus in Video Game Art and Design. Along the way through college, video games became less interesting and board games grew into more than a pastime. Nowadays designing board games is his day-to-day hobby/obsession.

Outside of the board game world, he enjoys spending time with his better-half, Kate, gardening, biking, 3D printing, and taking on home DIY projects.
