My name is Noah Read. I’m a designer, husband, and dad living in Seattle, Washington. I use this website to write my thoughts, amusing updates, and catalog my work. I grew up in the United States, mostly in Salt Lake City, Utah, but for periods in Michigan, Alabama, and Colorado. I gained a love of reading, writing, and drawing from a young age.

After high school I served a two year mission for my church in Peru. When I returned home I moved to the Puget Sound to attend a small art college and study graphic design. I met my wife while living in the Seattle area and we started our family. I began my career and since then have lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan, then Austin, Texas and now we’ve returned to the Seattle area.

I recently completed a Global MBA at IE Business School, currently volunteer as Board President and Head of Design for Their Story is Our Story telling refugee stories, and manage the design team at MoxiWorks to make tools for Real Estate Agents and Brokerages. You can also find me spending time with my family, reading until I pass out, taking pictures of beautiful things I see, or riding my bike around the Puget Sound.
