Josh has been with Three29 for almost 6 years, and is not only known around the office for his quick wit, but for being one of the best front-end developers we’ve ever known!

3 Influences

Spending time with my kids – Helps with keeping you on your toes and ready for whatever challenges come my way.

Building Models – I enjoy breaking things down and putting them back together with as much precision as possible.

Exercising – With how much sitting we do it’s always refreshing to get out and reset by getting the blood flowing. Helps with focus and tackling problems.

2 Fundamental Strengths

Determined – I really enjoy figuring things out, especially when a straightforward solution is not possible and requires creativity. I also take pride in clean code and enhancing user experience throughout the WordPress CMS.
Creative – Having knowledge and love for art, animation and graphic design really help with creating the front-end pieces and overall experience of a website.
