My name is Joe Tower. I design user-focused experiences.

I live in the Nokomis Neighborhood of Minneapolis, MN, with my spouse and three dogs. I am a print designer, turned web designer, turned front-end developer, turned wannabe programmer (trying to do it all). During the day I work as a senior designer and frontend engineer at Four Kitchens.

I make websites performant, visually pleasing, accessible, and user-friendly.

I am a film nerd, technology lover, music snob, occasional painter, enthusiast photographer, and world traveler. When it comes to food I am vegetable obsessed and prefer savory to sweet. Indian and Ethiopian foods are my absolute favorites.
