Josh grew up a navy brat in Yokosuka Naval Base, Japan. Due to the lack of available American television broadcasting and radio hits, Josh was raised listening to his dad’s record collection which included Led Zeppelin, The Who & Pink Floyd. He repeatedly watched the same movies on VHS and listened to music from 60s, 70s & 80s; Josh considers himself a connoisseur of pop culture from these periods, because in reality we all know this is a time period when quality and art were one and the same. He challenges anyone to match him in a game of movie or music trivia. After Josh graduated with a B.S. from Towson University he spent two years in New York City working in the Independent Film Industry, where he learned many skills that helped prepare him for a job at Discovery Education.
