Josh Cusick

About Me

Josh lives in St. Pete, Florida with his fluffy daughter, Lilo. He started his career in design by taking freelance gigs and eventually progressed to design systems.

He is passionate about building bridges for engineers and designers to meet each other halfway, coding, and trailblazing a new genre of designers.

He previously worked on design systems at Albertsons, Gusto, Microsoft, and EagleView.

While not working, he enjoys spending loads of time with his dog, playing guitar and piano, traveling, or board games with friends.
