Joshua Domingo


Joshua Domingo is a fifth year senior at the University of Hawaii at Manoa serving his first semester with ITMA. As a Management Information Systems major and Art minor, Josh is frequently working at Shidler, and in the photography and glass studios at the Art Department striving to complete his last semester. Pursuing a path towards the Human Computer Interaction field of IT in order to contribute to the growing body of technology we have today, he’s hoping to make an impact to improve both the technology we have in the present, and in the future, without detracting from the realities of our human lifestyles.

From open water swimming, photography, learning pointless skills, music searching, and much more, Josh is an incredibly mixed bag. He can easily tell you about the many failures he has had in life, but more importantly what he learned from them in hopes of giving others a good laugh and with the many little lessons he may have to offer.
