Hi, My name is Joseph Kaimilani Grace i’m an Industrial Designer based in Menifee, California. Since the age of 10 I’ve had the passion for design and innovation. It wasn't till my early teen years when I realized that industrial design was the right career for me. It allowed me to express my ideas and improve people's lives through innovative design. I'm a current graduate from The Art Institute of California, Orange County looking for a career in the industry . I specialize in product, environmental, toy, graphic, and conceptual design.
