Born a scant few months before a little movie called “Star Wars” hit the big screen, Josh was destined to be a sci-fi fan. Raised in a suburb of Philadelphia with a geeky family, Josh has never known a time when shows like “Star Trek” and “The Twilight Zone” were not a part of his life. As he grew up, his tastes expanded into fantasy, horror and any genre that held potential for great stories. Having dreams of being a writer and director, he studied film at Temple University. In 2001, he took the plunge and moved to Los Angeles with a few thousand dollars, precious few contacts and a dream. He soon crossed paths with the growing fan community for “The Lord of the Rings” and lucked into a job working in DVD which has since blossomed into an award-winning career. Organizing events for the Ringer community, he has become a fixture in local geek culture. His work in DVD has given him the opportunity to work with many of his favorite franchises like “Star Trek,” “Farscape,” “Stargate SG-1,” “Cowboy Bebop,” and “Highlander” to name a few. Never giving up on his dream of being a writer, he published his first novel in 2004. In 2008, his DVD work won him a Saturn Award. Josh still loves exploring the nooks and crannies of Los Angeles that cater specifically to the sci-fi/fantasy geek and considers himself a “geek adventurer.” While he has accomplished many of his dreams, he still unironically hopes to one day go into space.
