Currently splitting his time between running a startup and various contract work, Joshua enjoys getting to learn and explore new web tech in order to make cooler stuff, and refactor existing projects to help rid the work of janky nightmare code. He also uses the term ‘web 2.0’ way more than anyone should anymore, and thinks it is funny every time.
After graduating a web development course at The Iron Yard Academy in front end engineering, and developing for hungercrunch.com, Michelin North America, Oplan.co, and Benefitfocus, his programming interests outside of work revolve around data visualization and sending thank you cards to companies with public APIs.
A Full Sail University graduate with a degree in Creative Writing, Joshua likes industrial design, writing short films, short stories, and spends his free time in a state of transcendental caffeination either working on some coding project, playing drums, or writing stand up comedy. He spent six years in the U.S. Army, loved every second of it, but doesn't like shaving every day so that's all behind him.
Whether you liked anything enough to talk about working together, or hated anything enough that you need to let me know, I look forward to hearing from you.
