Hello! My name is Josh, I'm 20 years old, and I'm currently living in Melbourne, Florida, USA. I've been studying and traveling the world since I finished high school 3 years ago in northern Virginia, where I grew up. First I traveled with Up with People as a gap year program, then studied Environment and Energy at Hochschule Rhein-Waal in NRW, Germany, and then most recently went on exchange at Universidad Tecnológica La Salle in León, Nicaragua. My experiences led me to become enamored with ecology and helped transition me into 2nd tier systemic thinking, naturally leading me to Permaculture. My hobbies include photography, playing guitar (or whatever else I can make a nice sound come out of), reading, yoga, and opening minds 🙂 I'm excited to be part of this incredible academy and make connections, so feel free to drop me a message and reach out!
