Joshua was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and left at age 19 to join the US Air Force. After four years as an inventory research specialist, he reenlisted as an EOD Technician (Explosive Ordnance Disposal). He had the privilege of training and working in the field with members from every service branch and truly enjoyed that aspect of the job. Assignments took him to Thailand, several U.S. bases, and a six-year stint in West Germany. Following his Air Force career, Joshua moved his family to Kentucky and continued the important job of raising his children. Not satisfied with the condition of the public-school system, Joshua and his spouse decided to home-school their children. It wasn’t easy, but they made it work.
With his kids now grown, Joshua decided to pursue a career as an over-the-road trucker, something he’d wanted to do for years. However, after a few years, Joshua left the trucking industry and returned to college to pursue a degree in computer networking.
Joshua has also been active in local politics; joining the First Coast Tea Party to help alert the public concerning out of control spending by our “non”-leaders in Washington.
Joshua’s personal motto: “No matter how well it is currently being done, it can almost always be done better, faster, or more efficiently.”
