Me backpacking in Austria

Hey, I'm Josh!

I'm an autodidactic programmer, web developer, sci-com journalist, and computer guru. I am passionate about technology and the universe around us.

Currently I'm building 12 startups in 12 months.

I'm also a technical cofounder of grokSpace, a space analytics firm, and am a Masters student at the Colorado School of Mines Space Resources program. My research has covered spacecraft swarms, the commercialization of astronomical data, and lunar power technologies.

Previously, I cofounded Sayv, an algorithmic trading firm that focused on stock and option arbitrage strategies. We built a custom trading system in Python that allowed us to quickly iterate through strategies. You can view the database system we used here.

My background is in finance and accounting, but I don't let that determine what I can and can not do. A degree is no substitute for grit and self motivation. I make my own future.
