Joseph Gonzalez is a designer and artist, believing in a philosophy "you're never too old to play with toys". This philosophy inspires him to develop different kinds of toys and games, giving kids and adults alike access to play. Joseph was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. At an early age, he grew an interest in making toys and other forms of art. He did this by using different materials he was able to get his hands on. Joseph attended the Fashion Institute of Technology where he has an (AAS) associate’s degree in fine arts and a (BFA) bachelor’s degree in toy design. He has always shown a passion for building and figuring out how things work. In his free time, he has a particular interest in 3d printing, designing papercrafts, building toys, and creating other forms of art; this includes painting, sculpting, and drawing. Currently, Joseph is attending The City College of New York where he is receiving his (MA) master's degree in Art Education, so he can peruse teaching others the very thing he lives doing; to practice the fine arts and design. While he's attending university, Joseph continues to pursue his dream as a full time toy designer at Culturefly, where he is changing the world one toy at a time.
