Hello there!

My name is Josh. I've had experiences in leadership and teamwork from previous supervising positions. Thanks to those, I've been trained to have good communication skills and the ability to break down complex problems. I enjoy the feeling of solving difficult problems so I've dug into coding and data analysis. Using computational techniques to solve real-world problems brings me self-actualization. I hope this website provides an insight of myself, and I look forward to meeting you in person.
