Hey I’m Josh and welcome to my site! I’m a writer and journalist for several publications in the beautiful Champlain Valley region of upstate New York. I’m a writer the for Lake Champlain Weekly newspaper, as well as a variety of magazines here in the North Country. You’ll find my work published in Northern Exploring, Timeless Traditions and Northern Home, Garden & Leisure. I graduated cum laude from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2010, receiving my BA in Newspaper Journalism. I was an editor for the student-run newspaper, Cardinal Points, during most of my time there, starting first in features and later in news. I love spending spending time travelling the country, having visited 48 states and 18 national parks, before moving to Eugene, Oregon for some time. After I came back to New York, I returned to work again at the Press-Republican. In addition some writing, I was in charge of page design, image editing and proofing. Before long, I decided to take up writing full time.
