Josh was born and raised on sandy Cape Cod. He graduated from the University of Oregon with degrees in Journalism and Environmental Studies in 1998 and worked as an editor of the Earth First! Journal until 2001. Thereafter, he teamed back up with Cascadia Wildlands where he has worn a number of hats for the organization. In 2015 he was hired as Executive Director. When not working to protect and restore the watersheds and species of Cascadia, he enjoys floating down the bioregion’s spectacular rivers, digging in the garden, playing ultimate frisbee, and raising his kiddos.
