Josh has at least one brother. In 2006, he enrolled in Washington & Jefferson College for a Bachelor of Arts in Biology/Biological Sciences, General. He finished his degree in 2010 and joined Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine to obtain his DPM (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) by 2016.

He describes himself as adventurous, charismatic, and ambitious. His hobbies include Water Polo, swimming, listening to music, healthy cooking, napping, and meeting up with his pals. Josh has no tolerance for unnecessarily rude people or slow talkers, and one of his pet peeves is mispronouncing the word “salmon.” He is also a massive fan of Usher and was told that his appearance resembled the pop star in the past.

Josh was born with Prune Belly Syndrome, which is a congenital deformity. At the age of 9, he had a kidney transplant, after which he was prescribed immunosuppressant medication for his entire life. As a side effect, he developed stomach cancer when he was 25 and underwent complete stomach removal.

As of now, he’s reformed his eating habits and diet, which has contributed to his healthy and cancer-free life. Josh was in college during the gastrectomy and still graduated with the highest grade as a Class Valedictorian in his first year of medical school.

According to him, this victory is still one of the greatest accomplishments of his life alongside his battle with cancer and other detrimental health issues. He is also inspired by his kidney donor Kristen Reagle who passed at the age of 15 in an accident, and all her organs were donated by her grandmother. Josh recognizes that he can live every day due to her and is forever grateful for the kind gesture.
