Josh came to Laudisi with a lifelong passion for writing. A South Carolina native, Josh grew up in Lexington as a triplet with two sisters, Miranda and Meredith, and his loyal family pets: a dog named Lily, a cat named Cinnamon, and a yet to be named Parakeet. A self-described mildly color blind tall man with the ability to speak a smattering of Russian, Josh is a Coastal Carolina University graduate, where he studied Communication with a concentration in Interactive Journalism. He served as both a reporter and editor-in-chief for the university's newspaper, The Chanticleer, where he gained valuable writing experience, a keen eye for detail, and a witty sense of humor. Josh lives by the value of being earnest in everything he does.

Outside of work, you can catch Josh reading, watching movies, or hanging out with his friends and making bad jokes. Josh grew up doing both Boy Scouts and karate, earning both the rank of Eagle Scout and his black belt, respectively. His favorite book series is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. His personal hero and all-time favorite comedian is Norm Macdonald, finding his professional risk-taking inspiring. Josh lives by the wisdom to not worry about things that can’t be controlled, to do what you can, and let it all play out. This wisdom has allowed him to step back and pause whenever things feel overwhelming. Josh cares deeply about wildlife, animals, and the different life forms possible on earth, especially in seemingly impossible circumstances. The stranger the better.
