Hello and welcome to my personal site. My name is Josh. I'm a self-taught software engineer from the Pacific Northwest. Previously, I've worked for Procentive, Optum, Trane, Typeform, and Kraken. I now lead and manage the frontend engineering team at Embed, where I get to combine my passions: coding and finance.
Ever since my grandfather got my family our first personal computer for Christmas in the '90s, I've been coding. I got my start by teaching myself how to build maps, mods, and custom scripts for various video games before moving on to build full websites. After a brief (and rather boring) detour into corporate finance after college, I started my professional career as a software engineer and haven't looked back.
I have had the pleasure of getting work as a frontend and full-stack engineer at all levels: individual contributor, tech lead, engineering manager, and even technical co-founder (@PlanStack).
These days, I find myself learning to play tennis, enjoying time with my wife, hacking away on several open-source projects, and trying to build the next great thing (but aren't we all?).
