Hey there! My name is Josh.
I was four years old when my parents brought home a Super Nintendo. I’m sure they bought it for themselves, but it didn’t take long until I had the controller in my hands. I was enthralled.
Mario and Yoshi would end up being my entryway into my lifelong love of video games, computers, and tech in general. As the designated “computer guy” of my house, I got started in IT from a very young age. Whether it’s fixing computers, troubleshooting an application, or gathering requirements like that one guy in Office Space, I’ve done a little bit of everything.
I was born and raised in New England, but I wanted to make a big move after I graduated from college. So in 2010 my then-girlfriend and I packed our car and drove west along highway I-90 until it stopped in Seattle. That’s where we made our new home, and would eventually be where we started our family.
But New England never left our hearts, and after the birth of our second son we moved back home to be closer to our roots. We now live in southern Connecticut, a move that has had an immediate positive impact on our lives.
My first job out of college was in quality assurance at Nintendo. I then entered the world of enterprise software at Expeditors International where I worked as both a Systems Analyst and Business Analyst for their document management development group.
In 2017 I left my office job so that I could work from home as an independent software developer. I have worked on nearly two dozen individual projects over the last 7 years, with my largest release also being my first-even solo game, Village Monsters, which released in 2022.
