Josh has been building database applications for a broad array of organizations for more than 20 years, helping to cultivate high performance teams wherever he goes.

Josh’s core passion is to satisfy his mother’s instruction to “leave the world a better place than when you found it!” Toward that end he works with mission-based non-profits, and entrepreneurial concerns, and does some of his finest work integrating diverse applications across large corporations. In developing databases, Josh blends his MBA business knowledge with database technologies to optimize the workflows of large and small teams of users.

His specialties include web-based data applications, including Quick Base, SQL Server and MySQL, PHP, JavaScript, APIs, and XML. In addition to his Babson MBA with a focus on entrepreneurship, he studied Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard College.

Josh sings high tenor with the acapella group Blue of a Kind, who have performed at numerous venues including Boston’s revered Fenway Park. For almost 20 years he has coached children in the arts of creativity, teamwork and improvisation, through Destination Imagination. He loves to create tactile objects with his hands.
