PERSONAL BACKGROUND

Josh was born and raised in St. Albert. After studying in the United Kingdom, Josh was eager to return to the community he calls home.

When he isn’t working, you can find Josh enjoying events all over St. Albert and Edmonton, from the farmer’s market to the Edmonton Folk Music Festival. Josh loves checking out dog parks with his bulldog Owen, and they often explore St. Albert’s beautiful trail system together. Josh is also a dedicated golfer, and plays every Monday with his dad.

Though he’ll always return to St. Albert, Josh’s time abroad inspired him to travel as much as he can. Josh loves to experience new cultures, and hopes to visit Indonesia and India in the near future.
