Originally from Northern California, Josh has spent the last eight years living in Baltimore where he discovered his passion for the outdoors. While in college at Johns Hopkins University, he taught whitewater kayaking to other students on rivers in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Since graduating, he worked as an Environmental Engineer, restoring streams in Maryland that have been affected by excessive erosion in order to reduce the amount of pollution that can reach Chesapeake Bay. Despite working a 9 to 5 job, he continued kayaking on weekends and has traveled to Costa Rica and Chile to paddle. He is excited to return to the West Coast and to share his love of rivers with as many people as possible this summer! Josh is also a wilderness first responder, ACA kayak instructor and river rescue certified.
