Using an undergraduate degree in philosophy along with training from the Improv Olympic in Chicago, Josh started writing plays in Ireland with Catastrophe Theatre Co.  After having several plays – many of them site-specific productions – performed at such venues as the Galway Arts Festival and the Dublin Fringe Festival he returned to the States to get a playwriting MFA at the University of California, San Diego. Since then his plays have been produced or developed at such places as The Alliance Theatre, Atlanta; Crowded Outlet, New York; The Jungle Theater and Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis; The O’Neill New Play Conference, Connecticut; Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Ashland; Second Stage Theatre, New York; and AiShangChu Theatre, Hong Kong.  Election Day is published by Samuel French and in the Smith and Kraus anthology, New Playwrights, Best Plays of 2008.  Lone Star Spirits and Spoon Lake Blues are both published by Dramatic Publishing Co.  Josh received a 2023 Finalist award from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
