Music was always a part of Josh’s childhood. He remembers both of his parents playing current and older music, ranging from classical to disco and pop to jazz. At age 7, his two best friends were already studying classical piano and violin, which inspired him to begin taking classical piano lessons.
No stranger to working with major label recording artists, in 2008, Josh toured with Grammy award winning artist, Seal, as his musical director and keyboardist. In both 2007 and 2008, Josh received nominations by the International Dance Music Association (IDMA) for best remixer. In 2011, he engineered a remix of "Orpheus" (Quiet Carnival), by Sergio Mendes, that was nominated for a Grammy.
Josh currently resides in his hometown of St. Louis, where he serves as adjunct faculty at Ex'treme Institute by Nelly, teaching Media and Entertainment Business. In 2015, he founded STL Hit Squad, a collective of St. Louis-based artists, engineers and songwriters.
