Bestselling author, motivational speaker, and Paralympic ski racer


Josh has spoken across the world to groups ranging from Fortune 500 companies to White House.

Josh's journey began at age nine, when he was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and given a fifty percent chance to live. He spent a year on chemotherapy treatments and his left leg was amputated. Doctors declared Josh cured of the disease at age thirteen and he took up ski racing three years later. He trained for the next six years and in 2006 he was named to the US Paralympic Ski Team for the 2006 Paralympics in Turino, Italy. He is a current member of the US Amputee Soccer Team.

Josh served a two-year tenure as the National Spokesperson for the Combined Federal Campaign, an effort that raises over $300 million dollars a year for charities. He has been featured on the back of Doritos bags nationwide for his work on behalf of amputees.

Josh has been featured on CNN, USA TODAY, and NPR. His first memoir, Just Don't Fall, was a National Bestseller and his second memoir We Should Hang Out Sometime is under development to become a movie.

Josh received a degree in business from the College of William and Mary and a Master's in Communications from the University of Southern California. He lives in Washington, DC.
