Josh is a native Chicagoan held hostage to midwest winters by the pleas of his wife and two children who believe, with meager justification, that the change of seasons is good for the soul. He coaches baseball and softball, dabbles with playing the guitar, reads too many books, and can debate pizzas as well as launch timing.
