I'm Josh Thomas, an engineer, designer, and award-winning innovation director with a career devoted to discovering and exploiting opportunities that arise when emerging technologies or business changes create new consumer and user needs. I believe that innovation is driven by identifying opportunities and fresh approaches in delivering value to an organization and its customers. I help companies take bold entrepreneurial leaps in thinking using a product mindset required to create relevance in the face of exponential growth in technologies and user behavior.
To do this, I build and lead cross-disciplinary teams of designers, engineers, developers, strategists, stand-up comics, business development experts, and experiential artists who focus on new approaches to creating digital or physical products, platforms, and organizational design. I'm a doer, a thinker, and a leader, with experience getting my hands dirty in code, manufacturing, design, strategy, operations, and leadership. I'm an entrepreneur and an intrapreneur.
