Hey Josh. Thanks for agreeing to give our RESTORE tribe a look into your life. Let's get started.
Q: What do you do at RESTORE-Skills and in what circumstances would I come to you for something?
A: I build and maintain user interfaces, handle accessibility concerns, and help come up with development standards and practices for streamlined development workflows. You could come to me with any questions or concerns when it comes to user accessibility, the visual elements of RESTORE, or any nerdy tech questions.
Q: What led you to this career path?
A: I got into development as a hobby in high school. Being able to write code and see it do something always seemed interesting to me. Once I figured out I could do that for a living it just sort of happened.
Q: Who has influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work?
A: Probably a combination of my parents. They’ve always been hard workers, and have always mixed humor into their daily lives.
Q. What is your favorite thing to do when not at work?
A: I like tinkering with small electronics, building stuff around the house, and trying repeatedly (i.e. failing) to create music.
Q. What's something you recently saw that made you smile?
A: My daughter's first dance recital.
Q: What's one song/artist you are embarrassed to admit you like?
A: Fergalicious - Fergie (I know every word, and I guess I’m not embarrassed about it. It was my ringtone for several years.)
Q: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had, and what did you learn from it?
A: I don’t think I’ve ever had a “worst” job. I’ve worked fast food, as a stock boy at a grocery store, at marketing and promotional agencies, in retail corporations, and even spent some time in the Army. They’ve all had their ups & downs. I guess I’ve just learned to be adaptive and roll with the punches throughout all of it.
Q: What three words would your friends use to describe you?
A: Clever, Loyal and Tenacious
Wow! Well, we definitely need all three of those things here at RESTORE. Thanks for giving us some insight into your life. Have a question for Josh? Drop us a comment and we will get you an answer.
