Josh was born in Kinston, North Carolina, but spent most of his adolescence in Cincinnati, Ohio. He started diving in 2012, when his sister had a destination wedding on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. His father has been a recreational diver since the 1970s, so they get to enjoy the sport together quite a bit. His favorite dive courses he has taken so far are Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures and RAID CAVE 1. His diving goals include traveling to new destinations to dive cool caves & shipwrecks. He also wants to take a Stage Cave course and eventually learn to use a rebreather.
