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. 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.

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 mainly 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 I have the space and materials, I like to build reclaimed wood furniture. When work slows down, I like to hit the road (23 countries and counting). And when the spirit moves me, I write.
