Hey, gang. Like I said, I’m Josh.
Right now, I’m a front-end engineer at Vox Media. They’re based out of Washington, DC, but I’m working remotely from my home in Iowa.
I’m also really interested in music, journalism & writing, and filmmaking/composers.

Check out my timeline below!
I was born
I was just a baby at this time. And it happened in Ft. Dodge, Iowa. But my family had a house out in the country in Homer.
Bought a House
Bri and I bought our first house together. It was a little sad moving out of my downtown loft (and saying goodbye to that commute), but we were excited for all of the space.
Adopted Luna, a Great Pyrenees Mix Puppy
She. Is. Adorable.
We think she’s going to be very big as a grown-up dog!
Started working at Vox Media
I left the agency world and began working as a front-end engineer on the Revenue Products team. The future awaits!
We tied the hitch. Or did the knot. Or whatever the kids are calling it these days!
I got engaged
Can you believe it? This woman would become engaged to be married to me.
Started Above the Fold Podcast
And what a podcast it was! We originally planned to do a couple every month… And now it’s maybe more like half a podcast per month. Oh well, it’s definitely fun work!
Started work as a producer at KCCI
I got hired as a part-time weekend news producer at KCCI. A great, eye-opening experience about the world of journalism (and being a grown-up). Read about my experience.
It was my first trip to Seattle. My cousin, Susie, has lived there for nearly a decade. She showed me some cool spots, and we some excellent Seattle food in her backyard.
Became Lead Developer at Happy Medium
For the first time, we expanded our web development team to more than one person! We continued to get larger projects (along with more team members), and I shifted into more of a managerial role.
Started at Iowa State University
I came in as a freshman studying journalism and Spanish. I joined the marching band right away as a tenor saxophone.
Started work at Happy Medium
I was hired as a web developer. I do front-end design and development, back-end development, CMS integration, and ongoing maintenance and training. I’m huge into mobile-first and responsive design. I also do SEO, content strategy, and email marketing.
Started work at the Iowa State Center
Started a great job as the full-time online marketing specialist. I built HTML newsletters, updated print and web publications, and did an entire redesign of the website (which you can read about here).
Graduated from Iowa State University
Graduated with a B.S. in Journalism and a B.A. in Hispanic Studies (Spanish). I kind of use those degrees today…sometimes.
Interned at KCCI
I spent Summer 2010 with reporters and producers at KCCI, a television station in Downtown Des Moines. Really a great time. Read about my experience.
Studied Abroad in Valencia, Spain
I went over there for a few months. Also visited Rome one weekend. Excellent experience with excellent people.
Graduated Webster City High School
We were the Webster City Lynx. I played football, did a lot of band stuff, and was heavily involved in the TV production class, WCTV.
