The latter two are where his interest in the AV world stems from – his love of music and movies – and it naturally grew from there. He also has a deep interest in architecture and design, which coincides directly with his work at Jaymarc.
Josh attended Seattle Pacific University where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Economics. Josh’s varied work experience brings a unique perspective to the team, ranging from high-end residential construction, Alaskan commercial fishing, as well as work in both men’s and women’s fashion.
