Well, my name is Josh, but you probably already gathered that. I was born on May 12th, 1983 in a town called Nampa in a state called Idaho. I pretty much stayed put in Idaho, going to high school in Nampa and receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Theatre at Boise State University, in May of 2008. In between that time the only other place I lived was a brief stint in Auburn, NY, during the summer of 2005, where I was a production assistant and stagehand for the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, a summerstock musical theater nestled up against the Fingerlakes.
After graduating from Boise State, I attempted to find work in town during the "Great Recession," which proved fruitless. At my brother's urging, I moved to Portland, OR, at the end of the summer of 2008. I worked for three years in the office of a medical marijuana clinic, which is funny because I don't really smoke pot. But the pay was good and my coworkers were fun to watch because they were stoned most of the time.
I then went to graduate school at Portland State University, from which I have recently graduated with a Master of Science degree in Theatre. I now reside in Portland with my trusty sidecat Jowers and a comfy job as a legal assistant by day, improv/actor/etc etc by night.
