Josh was born in Lincoln NE, spent his formative years in Albuquerque NM and now lives in Denver CO with his wife and daughter. He is primarily a writer of fiction and has had one novel published as well as a handful of short stories. He dropped out of a film program in college after precisely one semester, wrote and produced two albums in the band Abraham the Poor, won two poetry slams in his early twenties and drew Harry Potter-themed comics for a while. He was co-host of the popular (yet now defunct) weekly arts podcast Ink & Echo.
"Cordial Kill" is Josh's directorial debut which was successfully crowdfunded in August 2016, then filmed over three days in Denver. Two weeks before shooting, the lead actor dropped out of the project due to unforeseen hindrances, so Josh (reluctantly) played the main character of Barry Henson. Post-production was completed in October 2017.
Josh is currently at work on his first feature film, a curious sci-fi comedy titled "There Are Five of Me" regarding an eccentric inventor who accidentally duplicates himself numerous times and has to deal with the consequences. Think Shane Carruth's "Primer" with the color and texture of a Wes Anderson film.
Lastly, Josh unironically collects VHS tapes and thinks King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are the best band that exists.
