Architecture 2008 | Co-Founder, Handsome Bag Co. | Email
Joseph is an architect in training but in his spare time he runs a social enterprise, Handsome Bag Co., with the aims of empowering local craftsmen and to bring back small time skilled manufacturing to Hong Kong. He is also an avid cyclist and ultra-marathon runner.
My favorite hangout at Rhode Island
The Pit (Shave Steak Sub with extra mushrooms), Circle A Cycles (for the bikes), the Beach (for the grass and people watching), the Farm (for the bike ride), the Point Street Bridge (for the peace), the Jolly Roger (cause I worked the night shifts), the Coffee Exchange (for the hot coffee) and Seven Stars Bakery (for the Ice Coffee).
My vivid memory of RISD
Lee Dejasu’s freshman class for teaching me that nothing is perfect but you won’t know unless you try.
My advise(s) to prospective students
RISD is the Reason I’m Sleep Deprived.
What occupies me now
Too much? I see that as an occurring theme with RISD grads, then again, it can never be too much. You only live once.
My next big move
Continue to be Hungry and Humble.
