Hello. My name is Joshua Doguet.

I was born on a Monday morning and raised on a crawfish farm in the heart of Cajun Country. I’ve spent most of my life writing and making things.

Between 2010 and 2013, I took a bachelor’s degree in economics, a juris doctor, and a diploma in civil law—all at Louisiana State University. While in school and for a time after, I ran a three-man creative agency that developed websites and brands for small-businesses. My company also launched two web apps along the way. One was an operations management tool geared towards farmers. The other was an online reference for the Louisiana Civil Code. Both are now defunct.

I’ve been published twice, more or less. My comment on the regulatory challenges posed by digital currencies was selected for Volume 73 of the Louisiana Law Review. And my map of Louisiana’s judicial districts and circuits was featured in the Louisiana Bar Journal, as was an interview of me that was mostly about the marriage of graphic design and the legal profession.

For now, I’m a corporate defense attorney at Kuchler Polk in New Orleans. I practice primarily in the realm of toxic torts.

When I have the patience and materials, I like to build reclaimed-wood furniture. When work slows down, I like to hit the road. (Twenty countries and counting.) And when the spirit moves me, I write. I’m currently working on a sitcom. And a novel. And maybe a few essays. Who knows.
