On Paper

Josh earned his BS in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship from Virginia Commonwealth University. During college, Josh used his passion for people and business as an Assistant Manager at Fossil. Along with serving customers, he kept the sales floor moving and the backroom stocked with merchandise. Most recently, Josh worked for Monument Consulting. There, he partnered with businesses to understand their human resource needs, and then strategically connected them to people with skills and personalities to fit those roles.

In Person

Josh’s favorite phrase is you only live once (#YOLO). With this mindset, he’s always up for trying new things. Got a favorite restaurant or book? Send your recommendations his way. On top of loving new experiences, Josh is passionate about supporting software users. At Unboxed, he works closely with our team to make sure we’re meeting our clients’ needs and making people’s lives easier.
