Hi. I'm Joshua Doguet.

Courir de Mardi Gras 2012 Courir de Mardi Gras 2012

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 2006 and 2013, I earned a bachelor's degree in international trade and finance, a juris doctor, and a graduate diploma in comparative law—all at Louisiana State University. During school and for a short time after, I ran a small creative agency that designed websites and branding for local 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.

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 appeared on the cover of the Louisiana Bar Journal. The issue also featured an interview of me that was largely about the marriage of law and design.

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

When work slows down, I like to hit the road (23 countries and counting). When I can find the right materials, I like to build reclaimed-wood furniture. And when the spirit moves me, I write. Current distractions include training my new pup and cataloging the color palettes of my neighborhood.
