Growing up in East New York, Brooklyn during the crack & murder epidemic that swept New York City had a major impact on Josh’s life. He witnessed and endured the struggles of drug abuse, gang violence & murder that became the norm during the 80’s & 90’s in East New York, one of the murder capitals of the country at the time. Becoming a star athlete in 3 different sports (football, wrestling & track) are what kept him off the streets and eventually led him to being recruited to play football at a military structured college which was also the highest paying college in The United States at the time.
After being the first person in his family to attend and graduate from college, Josh had a successful career in the Maritime Industry as a Boat Captain transporting millions of dollars worth of cargo around the country.
