Your average, everyday Portlander, Josh loves biking around the city, enjoying the fruits of a wonderful craft beer industry, live music, hiking, camping and fishing. His other hobbies include playing guitar, working on and riding motorcycles, playing soccer and lifting weights. Josh's adventurous spirit has taken him from the sultry tropics of the Pacific Islands and the isolated frontiers of western Alaska to the desolate expanses of Death Valley and the humid swamps of the Southeast US. Among myriad adventures, one stands out: salmon fishing and trailing moose and bears in the immense wilderness of western Alaska.
