Josh grew up as one of four kids on his family turf grass farm thirty minutes north of St. Paul in Lino Lakes, Minnesota. "I pride myself on a hard work ethic and the ingenuity to get the most difficult of tasks done, and done well,” Josh says. "I have a great deal of interest in international business. China is especially an interest of mine.” Recognizing that U.S. corporations will need people to successfully travel abroad and negotiate transactions, Josh hopes to one day own a business that operates on both sides of the Pacific. In his senior year Josh interned with SJU Alum, Tim Sellner ’77, who owns and operates Tanel 360. Tanel is an athletic shoe corporation manufacturing products in China and is based in Hopkins, Minnesota.
