I'm Josh. I moved to Atlanta last February.
I write for a newspaper and absolutely love my job. Things happen,
I meet people, ask them what happened, and I tell their stories.
Then I get a paycheck. It's kind of perfect.
I play guitar, banjo, pedal steel guitar (yes, I'll explain what
that is), mandolin and tinker around with a lot more.
What I’m doing with my life
Reporting for a newspaper until I can report for a better
newspaper, then a better one, then a better one...and then. Then
I'm going to give it all up to run a fledgling bowing alley
franchise. But that won't work so ill go back to newspapers.
I’m really good at
Making tacos, drinking coffee, Snood, sleeping, making people feel
better, cards, listening, spelling (lately), remembering faces but
letting my brain completely die when someone tells me their name
the first time they tell me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Southern accent, dimples or beard.

The six things I could never do without
Coffee, words, music, stories and two other things which I'll think
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing music, drinking a beer, writing, passing time with my
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
