Josh grew up in a working class family in Kansas City, working through high school and college to help pay for his Jesuit education at Rockhurst.  After graduating, he spent 12 years in the non-profit sector in organizational leadership and finance, most recently as an Executive Director for the Boy Scouts of America.  Josh has served as a fiduciary, financial planner for 3 years and is mission driven to help those who work hard to achieve success.

Josh met his wife Sarah 20 years ago while working as a lifeguard at the local YMCA.  Sarah is an educator and math coordinator, tasked with helping fellow teachers convey mathematical concepts to students more productively.  Together, they are very busy with their 2 teenage daughters who are actively involved in volleyball, drama and competitive dance.  

Outside of work and home, Josh is an avid volunteer and serves on several boards and advisory committees with the Truman Heartland Foundation, RareKC, the Kansas City Film Fest and the Boy Scouts of America.  If there’s any time left, he enjoys playing music on the guitar and woodworking.
